The homeless may not eat often enough, but in Fairfax County, Va., government officials want to make sure that the meals they do get are up to snuff:
Under a tough new Fairfax County policy, residents can no longer donate food prepared in their homes or a church kitchen — be it a tuna casserole, sandwiches or even a batch of cookies — unless the kitchen is approved by the county, health officials said yesterday.
They said the crackdown on home-cooked meals is aimed at preventing food poisoning among homeless people.
What’s next, banning home-cooked meals for those who have homes? We can get food poisoning, too, you know.
