^This is a shitty thing to do. You’re just going to make minimum wage workers have to spend all day peeling off stickers and make lower-class people who can’t afford non-gmo food afraid to buy food.
My favorite thing about this though is the QR code on the sticker.
Hamburger Helper and its generic versions are often go-to meal plans for lower income households. I know we sure ate the hell out of it growing up, back when my family was really struggling financially.
My family isn’t struggling so much these days, but still, we have nothing that could scan a QR code. We don’t have pocket devices with instant internet access. So how the hell is anyone financially worse off than us supposed to make use of this code and website?
This isn’t helping anyone. This isn’t educating anyone. This is just scaring people with limited options and giving more work to people who aren’t paid enough. This is bullshit.
Fuck I love Tumblr
Those kind of things piss me off so bad. Not just for the reasons listed above, but because it’s insulting to a lot of peoples intelligence.
Do they think a lot of people don’t realize that stuff is shit? Do they think a lot of mothers don’t place it in their carts with the mentality of, ‘at least the family will eat tonight’.
There are thousands of people in the world who would love to eat healthy. To buy fresh produce and make healthy meals for their families.
But until they make the cost of healthy eating comparable to low income eating - back the fuck off your high horse about the food people choose when looking at having to put SOMETHING on the table.
Reblogging this only because of the following statement:
"My family isn’t struggling so much these days, but still, we have nothing that could scan a QR code. We don’t have pocket devices with instant internet access."
Really? Ya’ll don’t have cellphones?
