We are broke. Obama committs $330Mill to pay grocery stores to open stores

Pissing money away hand over fist when we have no money.


Do we really need to give WalMart money to open a quickie mart in the hood so kids dont eat junk food? And do we really think they will not sell snickers if the little buggers want snickers?

Madness.

http://whitehouse.blogs.cnn.com/2011...food-deserts’/

(CNN) — Michelle Obama unveiled the latest push in her healthy-eating campaign Wednesday, announcing several national and regional food retailers have pledged to expand into a string of low-income markets where finding nutritious food options is nearly impossible.

“If a parent wants to pack a piece of fruit in a child’s lunch, if a parent wants to add some lettuce to a salad at dinner, they shouldn’t have to take three city busses…to go to another community to make that possible,” the first lady said at during a White House event marking the new effort.

National chains participating in the partnership include Wal-Mart, Walgreens and SuperValu, which have agreed to open or expand more than 1,000 locations as part of the effort to eliminate what the Department of Agriculture calls “food deserts” throughout the country.

A handful of regional retailers are also involved, including Calhoun foods, an Alabama-based chain that currently serves low-income communities with six stores. The minority-owned company, which in the depths of the recession two years ago was forced to cut back workers’ hours to avoid layoffs, said they plan to open 10 additional stores in the coming years in currently under-served communities. CEO Greg Calhoun as well as Jimmie Coleman, a manger at the chain, were on hand for the event.

The Obama administration is committing $35 million to the effort this year and is proposing $330 million from the budget next year.

Let me get this straight: they don't sell lettuce (just an example) at these stores in low-income communities? It's all junk?

Seems to me they like junk in the Hood. Wonder if these places will go out of business? It's very possible. Junks sells.

If it was profitable to have those sorts of stores in those locations, they would already be there by now.

Bet they get a deal on property so the city and state takes it in the neck as well. And in Chicago, some close friend and contributor will sell the land, you watch.

They don't need to be profitable, the government can just subsidize them. These people are obviously to ignorant to help themselves and need the government to step in./Left

My understanding is that they do and Michelle doesn't like that. She figures if he defies the laws of marketing and merchandising it will change what they will buy.

I'm a bit skeptical too. No lettuce? None at all, its just 100% junk?

If we had a situation where these inner city communities literally had nothing but junk food for miles in every direction, and it was not economically feasible for private business to sell healthy food in the area, then I could see the rationale for some modest subsidies so those who want healthy food can get it.

I just simply do not believe there is zero, zilch, no healthy food in heavily populated areas. I'm not talking every possible vegetable and fruit you could possibly find in a Whole Foods store, but if there's lean meat, salad, and basic fruit available, that is good enough for me to say healthy food is available. Hell, for that matter you could get nice premium salads in McDonald's.

If you want variety, move.
