Knew it was going to happen sooner or later. Just when we are feeling love for the celebrity chefs, such as Rachael Ray and Cat Cora, one had to come along and ruin the warm and fuzzy feelings. Thanks Paula Deen.
The queen of southern cuisine went to Washington, D.C. and with the help of Smithfield Foods, donated 25,000 Lbs. of ham to the Capitol Area Food Bank. 25,000 Lbs. of meat! Yuuuuuuuuuck!
Deen said that when people think of her, they think of food. “So it’s only appropriate that when I come visiting, I bring food,” she said. “That’s what southerners do.”
Not to sound like stalkers or anything, but we look at what regions our fans are coming from (through stat counter and IP addresses) and we know we have plenty of southern folk out there who read our site. It is time for y’all to speak!
Don’t southerners like veg food too? Yes, we know fried chicken is thought to be the national bird for some folks who cook southern, but she could have at least thrown some brown rice, whole grain cereal, and whole wheat pasta in there.
This is a stark contrast to our darling Heather Mills’ donation of over a million dollars of soy meat to a food bank in the Bronx. And it brings up a good point that we’ve touched on before: Can those in poverty access healthy veg food like everyone else? If you can’t get healthy, meatless items at the food bank, what’s a financially struggling person to do?
