---Won't Accept???? How? They can get corn but I'm sure bamboo shoots aren't cheap.
-For Hispanic families, the call is for rice, Maseca corn flour, cooking oil, hot sauce, salsa, and cans of fruit, veggies and hot peppers.
---Beans and Spicy Beans if farting contributes to global warminng liberals better help deport 'em all, they already get tons of rice btw so....
----For Real though people can't live off that crap.
-Salvation Army spokeswoman Annette Bauer said the charity is also seeing an increased demand at its food shelves for gluten-free products among families with members dealing with allergies
---Fair enough
----This is the only reasonable request.
-----If you want to eat specific stuff go get a real job and buy it yourself

almost every food we eat is either a ethnic food of some country. or one that has been altered to become different in many ways.
.
sausages are European. same with buns. combine them. what do you get - a hotdog.
The word frankfurter comes from Frankfurt, Germany, where pork sausages similar to hot dogs originated. Wiener refers to Vienna, Austria, whose German name is "Wien", home to a sausage made of a mixture of pork and beef. those types were and are also still used today in hotdogs. the bun was from a Polish vendor at the time.
.
our fish and fries are British in ancestry. but over there they call the fries - chips.
.
the pizza here is a define alteration of what is consumed in Italy.
.
and the food we know as saurkraut actually has it's ancestry in China. same with several other 'ethnic' foods we associate with Europe.
.
meatloaf is a dish with German and Belgium roots. a Roman mentioned it in the 5th century in his writings.
.
from doing research on it. beer originated in either Egypt or Iraq. both have it recorded in their ancient records. and both countries records are about the same age as the other country.
.
just like many regions have their own form of bread. be it raised and or flatbread.
.
.
so before you call any food American. better take a look at the roots of that food. things you uncover about it. just might surprise you.
.
.
just like coffee originated with Muslims. since the coffee plant was found in Islamic held areas. http://www.ncausa.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm... The Arabs were the first, not only to cultivate coffee but also to begin its trade. By the fifteenth century, coffee was being grown in the Yemeni district of Arabia and by the sixteenth century it was known in Persia, Egypt, Syria and Turkey.
Its popularity was perhaps due, in part, to the fact that Muslims, forbidden alcoholic drink by the Koran, found coffee's energizing properties to be an acceptable substitute.
Nothing but halal beef for Svengoolie on the bus. Her Somali men must be halal.

"Halal is an Arabic word that means "permissible." In terms of food, it means food that is permissible according to Islamic law. For a meat to be certified "halal," it cannot be a forbidden cut (such as meat from hindquarters) or animal (such as pork.)

The slaughter of a halal animal is called "zabihah" and there are certain guidelines to follow:

Allah's (God's) name must be pronounced during slaughter.
The instrument must be very sharp to ensure humane slaughter. The animal must be slit at the throat.
The animal must not be unconscious
The animal must be hung upside down and allowed to bleed dry. Eating blood is not halal.
These steps must be accomplished by a Muslim or the People of the Book (Christian or Jew.) Many observant Muslims find kosher meat acceptable.
The animal must have been fed a natural diet that did not contain animal by-products.

I'm pretty sure most people reading my post understood that by "American food" I meant the vast variety of food readily available in the average grocery stores in every neighborhood. With all due respect.
And in all that travel, did you ever go to the local food shelf and demand a cheese burger and a coke? Maybe some pot roast?

It seems many people on this thread are forgetting this... This is a CHARITY handing out food to people; if you want specific stuff maybe your religious place or support group can help but otherwise you made the choice to move here.

Coke is every where, but I don't drink it, besides, in Europe wine is cheaper!
And, when I lived in Amsterdam there was an Aldi's 1/2 block away, but I shopped in the huge outdoor markets like everyone else. They are one of my favorite things about travel.

tuna can be as pricy as the slew thinks it is. but many folks do not go for that. many tend to go for the cheaper stuff. about $1 a can. and during Lent. it is even cheaper yet per price.

one thing that could also be done. is to teach folks on how to grow a garden.
.
even if you have space for aquarium in your house. as well as windowsills. you have space for a hydroponic garden.
if you have a postage stamp patio. you have space for a topsy turvy garden. and if you live in where you have a dividing wall as well as someone has a patio over you. you can grow veggies in a raingutter garden.
.
food shelves need to hold classes on how to grow food in limited space.
