Did you have to be such a bitch about it? I just thought some people would appreciate something for free when things are tight for so many people.

And that's the tragedy of America's food apartheid. Poor people often have little choice but unhealthy fast-food, while middle and upper-class families have more healthy options.

Nice commentary on our world today, Allison. Also, way to be a complete jackass. It's people like you--who feel the need to assume the worst about everyone--that are what's wrong with our country. Instead of thinking, "Oh, hey, if the Chick-Fil-A is giving away free sandwiches, that means those less fortunate than myself will have a decent-tasting meal to eat." Not to mention that the chicken sandwich has a third the saturated fat of a McDonald's double cheeseburger. Not to mention that it's called MARKETING. It's what companies do!

I hope you get off your high-horse and put your money where your mouth is. If you've got enough time to read these forums and gripe about corporations in the food industry, I'm sure you've got time to find a charity to donate to.

I think Allison does have somewhat of a valid point. My grocery bill for 4 people is crazy. I have cut out all goodies and buy basics. My kids each get to pick a fruit instead of the multiple kinds I use to buy.
When you look at the options that are lower cost what is there? Hot dogs, Mac and Cheeese, Ramen Noddles, etc. They are so bad for you yet cheap.
I will do my best to avoid getting to that point where I will have to get these things to survive.
Soon meat and vegtables will be a luxury for many if the economy continues to tank.
That being said I think it is nice that Chick fila was giving out samples and that someone took the time to share the info for those who may have been interested
Fastfood isnt cheap

I'm not sure where everyone is shopping, but if I eat fast food every day as opposed to shopping at the supermarket, my bill pretty much doubles for the month. Multiply that for a family of four, and it's downright unaffordable. I don't buy the argument that poor people are overweight because Mcdonalds has a value meal, I can beat that price by about half, eating much more healthy food.

Charity? Why the hell should I donate to charity and only prolong the problem. We need government action to correct an injustice, not charity.

As we blog, the Los Angeles City Council is considering an ordinance that would place a moratorium on fast-food establishments saturating predominantly poor and minority neighborhoods.

Elected and appointed officials in Richland and Milford should consider a similar ordinance. Speak with any physician at St. Luke's Hospital and they will verify that people living in Upper Bucks have more health problems than people living in Central Bucks. Diet and economics are a major factor in this problem.

The marketing tactics conducted by Chick-Fil-A and other fast-food establishments target poor and working-class communities. But perhaps more appalling is when these companies target children during Saturady morning cartoons with an array of appealing characters. It's a problem that the FCC should address, but won't under the corporate-friendly Bush Administration. However, local governments do have the power to deny building permits to fast-food establishments, and should go further in considering a moratorium.

Don't you remember when the car dealerships used to have their big open houses when the new model line would debut in September each year? They always gave away free hot dogs!

At least with Chick Fil A, it is 100% white meat chicken which is much better than burgers at Burger King or Mickey D's.

Perhaps then we can outlaw stores that sell sharp objects and supermarkets that sell hot dogs?

I think instead of legislating how people live, we should preserve the freedom that this country is built on.

Sorry you can't have a Burger King. We think poor people are too stupid to make their own decisions about food.

Like I said in a previous post. Fast food is too expensive to eat everyday, so that is not even a valid argument.

Wow... this thread got dumb fast.

As for Richland's new Chick-Fil-A... this one's a family owned franchise (as in small business). If you are into fast-food chicken, then support this place.
Hmmm

america's food apartheid? really? wow you are dumb. so poor people can not go to the grocery store and pick up a healthier food for a lesser cost? it costs more to eat out every meal then it would to shop.
