Giving things to others is a kind of philanthropy’s activities. Being a philanthropist is also good idea as you will feel happy when others are happy and you will feel relieved when others are helped. It is a stimulus for our brain to treat others good and better. It can create a peaceful mind by doing a little action.

The stamp foods program is not working.

People are using the food stamps to buy beer and soft drinks and pop corn and Chips Ahoy!

When I say vitamins I mean anything that the human body needs to survive like minerals and fibers.

I am not a nutriologist.

By vitamins I mean pills.

You get a box filled with all the bottles you need to survive and instructions about how many pills you need to take each day and that sort of thing.

Nutrition classes paid by the government is a good idea because unemployment among nutriologists would drop to zero.

Cooking classes paid by the government is a good idea because unemployment among cheft would drop to zero.

I also think unemployed chefs should cook healthy food for families once a month.

Government chefs would cook on 30 houses each month.

If you are an unhealthy family then the healthy meal will be mandatory and you will be forced to pay the chef and the ingredients assuming you are employed and in the top 80%

If you are an unhealthy family then the healthy meal will be mandatory and you won't have to pay for the chef or ingredients if you are unemployed or in the bottom 20%

If unemployment among chefs starts to go go down we can increase the number of mandatory healthy meals to 2 per month.

People can still opt out of the healthy meals programs if they pay a fine which will be used to feed the unemployed.

I think food stamps should only cover healthy foods and maybe give a nutrition/cooking class to help those who don't know how to cook. Not everyone grew up in a home where they were taught to care for themselves.

Why not both? You can't just live on vitamins. You need proteins and amino acids and minerals and fiber and other stuff too.

How come many poor people are unhealthy and fat? They don't know how to feed themselves properly.
