“The strict rules at fast-food restaurants help to create food that always tastes the same. They help workers fill orders quickly.” (McJobs by Eric Schlosser and Charles Wilson) This supports my claim because it shows how fast food is inexpensive and consistent. This means that people that don’t have the money to go to the grocery store every week can put food on the table for their families that always tastes the same. Finally, the following quote shows that the fast food industry provides jobs for uneducated people. “When all the knowledge is built into the operating system and the machines in the kitchen, a restaurant no longer needs skilled workers.” (McJobs by Eric Schlosser and Charles Wilson) This supports my claim because it shows how the fast food industry provides jobs for uneducated people.
When deciding what you want to eat for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, knowing the nutritional values of each meal can be an important component of your decision. David Zinczekos’s essay, “Don’t Blame the Eater”, he uses personal experience since as a child, he was obese and he had limited healthy food choices as a result of his parent’s split up, his daily meal choices came from fast- food restaurants like McDonald's or Taco Bell. But, he became involved in the health and wellness industry, which helped him manage his diet. Fast-food restaurants appeal to the parents and their children because they are an
Off-campus lunch provides money for our community, the students mature and learn to become responsible adults, not to mention they get a nice break from their learning environment. According to the Berkshire Eagle “Open-campus lunch leads to students putting money back into the economy. Local establishments like Teddy’s restaurant would likely be out of business if not for the hundreds of students that pass through their doors every week at lunch.” When students eat at local establishments and fast food chains they are actually helping out their community. Students go out to eat all the time. When they bring their friends to an establishment they help their community grow.
If he ate at this restaurant, he would rate it as okay because of the various halo effects Olive Garden casts on their menus along with the origin of where the food comes from. When I asked Aracely, the manager, she said that their meat comes from the company Darden, which of course is the major business that own various chains of restaurants. This being said, if their meat comes from a company such as Darden, then it consists of being industrialized. For example, despite Olive Garden showcasing expensive and quality food, they still promote the ingredients to being industrialized. From there, I investigated that Darden supplies their food from other chains of farms.
Hunger Banquet Volunteering at the Hunger Banquet at Montgomery College is one of the best experience of my life. Volunteering at the Hunger Banquet, I learned and developed new ideas on how to help people with an insufficient meal. At our first meeting at the Hunger Banquet, we discussed in detail what we hope to achieve during the program and how volunteers and attendees can help to achieve the goal of hunger awareness. Our mission at the Hunger Banquet was to help fix Broken Food System in our community and extend it to other municipals. Professor Ruppert, Hunger Banquet coordinator at Montgomery College, emphasizes that hunger is one of the predominant issues in the world.
I found Phyllis Ryder’s “Rhetorics for Community Service” book most useful in helping me reflect on my service learning. I am currently volunteering in Miriam’s Kitchen, which is a non-profit organization aiming to end the chronic homelessness in DC. In order succeed, kitchen volunteers help prepare and serve meals to people in need. However simple this job may seem, there is a deeper meaning in what we do. We make our guests feel respected, safe, and treated as ordinary people.
Making lunch food healthier is not as hard as it seems , there are many ways to improve the way we eat .We the students need to have healthier meals not just junk food instead of the school selling us chips , nachos and chili fries we can make alternatives like salads or fruit bowls . One proposition would be ,instead of having frozen foods; would be for the lunch ladies to actually get a chance to cook the foods we eat.This and actually going out to the district and demanding a change in our lunch food if no one complains there will never be a change in what is being given to us . By actually trying to do these strategies can help and change our lives drastically , like our health. In the film “Super Size Me”, the guy doing the experiment in which he eats Mcdonalds for a whole month ,goes to some schools to investigate what kids are being given during lunch time in one of the schools he went to they were being fed “junk” they only ate greasy and sugary foods which as we all know is bad for you. In the other school he visited was completely different they actually got real foods that were actually cooked by the lunch ladies.
Around the world more and more people are doing their best to eat healthier, one of the ways they are doing this is with the locavore movement. The locavore movement is a way of eating where all of the food that one consumes is both produced and sold locally. Locavores choose to eat food that has come from their community rather than from across the nation. Eating food that is from one’s local community is incredibly beneficial to both the environment and the health of the citizens, to greatly important components of a functional community. If a community were to implement the locavore movement, it would better the economy and enhance the nutrition and health.
Some of them even thought that two meals a day is a sort of extravagance. It could be days until their next meal. Luckily, there are a number of kind souls which had set up a charity project which is the soup kitchen. Soup kitchen are set up to provide free meals to people who are suffering for hunger. Things had been a little better until the moment when the Federal Territory Minister had called a stop on the soup kitchen due to the cleanliness and the raising of disease such as Leptospirosis and dengue.
A tastefully designed yard can add cosmetic appeal to a house and, in turn, increase the overall value of one’s home. Besides adding monetary value, a garden can help one sell their house faster than the average homeowner. Gardening also realigns one with the origins of their food. After I started to care for my own vegetables and herbs, I became more conscious of my overall diet; this is something that relates to me straight away. Gone are the days when I would be eating fast food on a frequent basis.
