NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s food police have struck again!
Outlawed are food donations to homeless shelters because the city can’t assess their salt, fat and fiber content, reports CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer.
Glenn Richter arrived at a West Side synagogue on Monday to collect surplus bagels — fresh nutritious bagels — to donate to the poor. However, under a new edict from Bloomberg’s food police he can no longer donate the food to city homeless shelters.
It’s the “no bagels for you” edict.
“I can’t give you something that’s a supplement to the food you already have? Sorry that’s wrong,” Richter said.
Richter has been collecting food from places like the Ohav Zedek synagogue and bringing it to homeless shelters for more than 20 years, but recently his donation, including a “cholent” or carrot stew, was turned away because the Bloomberg administration wants to monitor the salt, fat and fiber eaten by the homeless.

BECAUSE THE HOMELESS WOULD RATHER STARVE THAN HAVE A DIET HIGH IN SALT AND FAT.
LOL, don’t let them test what’s in the cholent, they will ban all food donations! Kidding of course, this is obviously insane, no matter how much salt is in cholent. Bloomberg is a piece of trash.
Good for him… but why doesn’t he just ban all distribution of food?
Only a billion people survive perhaps, or else a 6 billion gardens/farms are built so people are self sufficient or dead. Either way, no more series of 100s of generations starving and having 7 kids who grow up in a starving family so more and more people need more and more food but produce less and less of it themselves.
10,11, 12, or maybe 13 generations later of this crap and the whole human race is extinct and made up of people who take without giving back an equal amount or more.
Food that is otherwise going in the garbage can. If homeless bob doesn’t get his usual free bagel that he counts on from the local synagogue, tell me whether homeless bob is more likely to shrug his shoulders throw his hands up in the air and lie down to die of starvation killing off generations of humans (cause homeless bob was really gonna give birth to 7 kids in a dumpster), OR commit violent crimes until he otherwise obtains his free bagel.
