Skip to comments.No doughnuts under Newsom's SF healthy foods plan
Posted on 07/10/2009 7:42:49 PM PDT by freespirited
SAN FRANCISCODoughnuts could be a distant memory for San Francisco city workers.
They must now follow "healthy meeting" guidelines under a sweeping initiative unveiled by Mayor Gavin Newsom Thursday to encourage better eating. That means less junk food and smaller portions at staff meetings.
The mayor is also ordering all city departments to help locate vacant or unused city-owned land that could be used to grow food.
Vendors that offer healthy food will get preference for city contracts and permits. All vending machines on city property additionally will have to meet new nutrition standards.

nanny state ping
Carrot sticks, celery stalks and coffee. Yummie! Freakin’ idiots!
Kalifornia is broke and now telling it’s employees what they can eat....
Hey, look; some things are important! /tu
I bet if you wanted to smoke marijuana or sodomize each other during the meeting, it’ll be perfectly acceptable to Gavin.
Visiting Krispy Kreme tomorrow.
Good heavens, this guy thinks he’s God! Lifestyle Tyrant ping!
If there were 2 homos sodomizing a 10 year old kid on the SF city steps that’s normal to Gavin but try to eat a Whopper on the city steps and off to jail you go.
A buddy of mine since High School told me yesterday over lunch about one of his co-workers trips to San Francisco.
This co-worker is gay. The company sent him to San Fransicko on business. My friend said in effect “Congratulations, this is great, you will have a great time.”
One problem....he was also a smoker. He couldn’t smoke anywhere in the city. He lit up in his hotel room and the hotel fined him.
God is funnier than Eddie Murphy and Sam Kinison times a billion. You can’t make this stuff up.
Good luck growing food on contaminated city lots. PCBs make the veggies extra tasty.
Have the coffee and skip the fried dough . I agree that this is nanny statish but some people have got to be told that they are eating crapola that’ll kill them sooner more than later . I haven’t had a doughnut since I was 12 years old . You grow up , and learn .

Evem without the PCBs San Fran is pretty much a desert ~
I wonder how much food Twosome could grow between his ears? That's vacant and unused space.
The insane behavior of 0bamatrons is always good for a laugh
Every year SF has a gay fair called “Up Your Alley” —that’s not a joke:
Most men who show up just cruise and gawk at one another, but many men do chose to walk around in public NUDE at this festival, and many fellate one another.
A small number pee on on another (something I cannot really understand), and some even masturbate from 2nd floor windows, as the men below cheer, clap, or snap photos.
The police don’t do anything about this, OK? And the cops are on-scene, watching.
Oh, I almost forgot —if you are an SF city worker, you can compel the city to pay for the sex change operation of your domestic partner, as long as you are registered.
Advice is okay. Coercion is an entirely different thing.
Not to worry; growing food requires work.
He’s about 120 years to late. He could have been Emperor
Joshua Abraham Norton (c. 1819 January 8, 1880), the self-proclaimed His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, was a celebrated citizen of San Francisco, California, who in 1859 proclaimed himself “Emperor of these United States” and “Protector of Mexico.”[
Though he was considered insane, or at least highly eccentric, the citizens of San Francisco celebrated his regal presence and his proclamations, most famously, his “order” that the United States Congress be dissolved by force (which Congress and the U.S. Army ignored) and his numerous decrees calling for a bridge and a tunnel to be built across San Francisco Bay. On January 8, 1880, Norton collapsed at a street corner, and died before he could be given medical treatment. The following day, nearly 30,000 people packed the streets of San Francisco to pay homage to Norton. Norton’s legacy has been immortalized in the literature of writers Mark Twain and Robert Louis Stevenson, who based characters on him. In December 2004, a resolution was made to name the San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge in honor of Norton, but the idea did not progress further
Thank you. :-)
Bush telling you what you can eat = FASCISM!
They may have to try container (above-ground) gardening. Or lasagne gardening.
Obviously if the whole state had been eating their carrot sticks and drinking spinach juice the budget would be balanced.
I think that in this case , since the city contracts vendors , they have the right to decide what foods are available . If you want to eat crap like doughnuts on your own time you are free to do so .
Liberals thy God is power, greed, corruption, and ego. The true God will judge them in the end.
Some lady who works in my building called the Ohio Smoking SNITCH Line because she had to walk past someone having a cigarette OUTSIDE. The County Health Department came out on Monday and issued a warning to the building’s management. Needless to say, this lady was the “butt” of jokes all day, even by lawyers. This one woman caused so much ruckus, and you know she’s going to do it again.
I don’t appreciate the amount of time and tax dollars spent on this at all. I e-mailed my State Senator.
Hi, there! :-)
They’ll just put Krispy Creme out of business, like they did GM. The government will force them into bankruptcy then they’ll take thme ovcr and force them to produce ‘green’ meeting foods.
Don’t be surprised if it ends up as soylent green snack food. You know, according to the green mythers, that there is an excess population on the planet, which contributes to global warming. It’s devilishly clever to have the serfs reduce their own population at their government meetings!
No donuts at staff meetings?
And they think everyone will show up without them?
Like everything else the Gubmint dictates, when is enough, enough?
I have no intention to surrender my freedoms, whether it's donuts, cars, guns or houses that I choose to own. Do you?
I just had a grape jelly donut today, as a matter of fact.
It was good. I enjoyed it. I work for lawyers. Sue me. :-)
San Francisco, where barebacking is allowed but eating creme puffs are not.
One can live without doughnuts . America has a huge obesity/health ( heart ) problems . Why should the Gubmint add to the problem ?
Supplied by the Gubmint ?
Even better, supplied by lawyers. :-)
Yeah, well, some Administrative Assistant lady snitched on me for mailing a birthday invitation to my kids party using company money.
I put 42 cents worth of nickels and pennies on her desk in an envelope for her the next morning.
Maybe they can follow the Obama’s approach. Have a photo-op planting, buy grown plants and have a photo-op harvest a couple weeks later.
You’re saying if someone is truly an adult, they’ll never consume a donut, ever? That seems pretty extreme. I wouldn’t eat one every day or even once a week any more than I’d have a soda that often, but a couple donuts a few times a year isn’t going to kill you or even harm you.
This case of Schadenfreude I have is going to require many hours of intense psychotherapy. :-) Not. It just makes me giddy and I can't help it.
I'll say it again....If I had a dollar for every fat woman who waived their sausage like fingers in front of their face to waive away my cigarette smoke (back when I used to smoke tobacco) and then dove back into their desert....I'd have more money than Bill Gates.
I told the fat cow that she would be next to be rounded up in the boxcar but they would have to put her in there by herself because there would be no room for anyone else. Her tattooed boyfriend threw a punch at me.
"Your right to eat burgers, hot dogs, donuts and get hypertension and diabetes ends where my wallet and tax dollars begin."
If Gubmint is paying for your healthcare in a Faustian bargain, it's their right to intervene. Welcome to Socialism 101.
"Eat a poofter, not a puff!"
"You can pack fudge, but don't you dare eat any!"
You can not honestly believe that people don't know this, can you ?
Thanks for the ping!
Hi, Alamo-Girl. :-)
Hi there, GOP_Lady!
Don’t forget that in San Fransicko you can inject IV drugs under supervision at a clinic....in a non-smoking environment of course.
