The Food Stamp Diet

I think this article from the CEO of Panera Bread is an important article to read.  After I talked about the SNAP program in a recent blog I received some  “anonymous” critique by mail (which I shredded with all the other “anonymous” input I receive).  Lots of people seem to spend a lot of anxiety on how hungry people might waste assistance (mostly people who have plenty to eat, I note, like me). This article may help bring home the point that as long as one person is hungry in this world, we are all starving to death in some way (to paraphrase Martin Luther King Jr.)  Further, I always assume that when I stand before my Lord on judgment day, whatever that may involve, I will want to be guilty of giving too much to people who may not have deserved it than to be guilty of seeing the hungry “and giving nothing to eat.” (Matthew 25).  Just what I’m thinking today.

New Pittsburgh Courier – Panera CEO clueless about hunger till his food stamp diet.

    I am with you brother, on judgement day I too want to be accused of doing too much! Thanks for the sermon cue!
