THE BAD OLD DAYS: The Trump "food box" proposals recalls the day of distribution of government cheese and other commodities to poor people.
The Trump administration idea to replace a big part of the SNAP (food stamp) program with boxes of non-perishable food items is, I think the LA Times writer gets correctly,
his meanest idea yet.
It is also stupid. And major media have fallen down badly on the job by picking up the administration phrase that this is somehow akin to "Blue Apron," which provides ingredients and instructions for busy yuppies to put a gourmet meal together.
better commentary is this list of 60 questions posted on Twitter
by Annie Lowrey. As someone else observed, there's no indication the Trump administration considered any of these questions, beginning with delivery and lack of fresh fruits and vegetables.
