LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Ban the distribution of food

I recently spent some time in the parking lots of both Raley’s and Safeway and made some very interesting observations. None of the people entering these stores appeared to be hungry, yet all of them left with multiple bags of groceries. I feel this behavior to be detrimental to our society, particularly our youth who are coping with the crisis of childhood obesity.

I propose that our City Council immediately begin holding secret meetings to institute a ban on the distribution of food within the city limits.
