No More Free Doughnuts

Posted by ALmod on September 24, 2007

I woke up to find this story and thought it was rather interesting.

Local officials decided that accepting donations of doughnuts and pastries to senior citizens in the area was sending a bad nutritional message, and now seniors are outside protesting.  But the ban doesn’t affect what seniors feed themselves, only what they receive from the center.

“Senior citizens can walk down to the store and buy doughnuts. Nobody’s stopping them,” said Michael Jacobson, executive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest in Washington.
