Re: “Food and Survival

Hi Jorgiana. I'm not sure where you received the information that college students are not eligible, but that's not entirely true. College students DO qualify, but only if they meet certain requirements. Here is a link that can help you figure out whether or not you qualify.

Re: “Food and Survival

Curious as to food assistance for college students. I just found out college students are ineligible for SNAP. Other than market on the move, and going to food banks, is there help for working college students?

Re: “Food and Survival

Spaerhawke,I totally Misread your comment, and thought you were speaking to me. It was pointed out to me that you were not speaking to me, but to the first person who commented on the article. I apologize, my bad. This is what happens when I don't drink coffee in the morning and I read comments. My apologies.

Re: “Food and Survival

Hey there Spaerhawke...not really sure what abuse you're talking about...there was no mention of that. Re read the article.

Re: “Food and Survival

Funny, I thought this was a story about one family's eating survival and the use of the SNAP program, not the misuse of the program. I think this story could be quite beneficial to families that are using the program and were unaware of the other outlets and retailers that are being mentioned in this story.
Why don't you take your witnessing of the abuse of the program and report it to the proper authorities that could actually do something about the abuse you describe, in quite minute detail, it appears that you have firsthand knowledge/witnessing that would be beneficial to those authorities.

Re: “Food and Survival

Abuse rates of SNAP have been studied and are below 5%. But go ahead and starve granny cause there are some coke heads out there getting a free ride. That's totally American...

Re: “Food and Survival

Being a fair and "complete story" journalist, I'm sure you will include in your series the many abuses and downright criminal uses of SNAP. Just a few are: selling the SNAP card for about 50 cents on the dollar giving the buyer the pin, as ID is rarely checked. Buying high cost and brand name items with SNAP (a lot of times the card holder will cover the front of the card with masking tape so as others in the grocery line won't see the card logo), and the worst abuse being an unscrupulous shop owner scanning a legal nutritious item such as donuts but substituting booze/cigarettes etc. These are just a few abuses, but I'm sure more will be covered in the fair and balanced continuation of this story.

Re: “Happy Anni-BEER-sary

In light of the recent preponderance of alcohol-themed advertisements published under the guise of journalism, I propose that the "Chow" section be renamed "Swill."

Re: “Trend Eating

Great article!

Small correction: it's NIMAN ranch, not Neiman.

Re: “Flavorful

Sounds like an interesting place, and it's nice to see an article about something besides booze!

Re: “Top Shelf Predator

(Sigh) Another alcoholic beverage promotional piece...oh, but it's for a good cause, right? " raise awareness of the need for habitat conservation and preserving the character of southern Arizona." What "character" is that? The one that the Native population bestowed on the area by living lightly on the land? Or the one that limits development just enough to allow rich, mostly non-Native homeowners in the foothills to preserve their views and property values?

Re: “Independent Spirit

Reading this article reminded me of the old saying “Whatever a patron desires to get published is advertising; whatever he wants to keep out of the paper is news.” Do the Weekly's editors regard the recent proliferation of bars, (aka "craft breweries and distilleries") in Tucson to be a good trend? If so, they should instruct Adam Borowitz and anyone else who writes about the subject to elucidate why that would be so. I can't imagine one's life being so empty that one would start caring about the flavor combinations in which one's booze could be served.
I dearly hope that the cannabis legalization effort will be successful come Election Day. Perhaps it will have a beneficial side effect of taking some business away from the excessively popular alcoholic beverage merchants in this city. More potheads and fewer drunks would be a blessing.
Also, Mr. Borowitz should know that his casual comparison of bartenders to professors is an egregious misuse of the title: A professor is a rank to which many aspire, but few attain. It is only achievable by those who have earned a doctoral degree and have made significant contributions through teaching, research, publication and other forms of service to their employers and to their fields of study.

Re: “Independent Spirit

Chow is a breed of dog. I strongly suggest you just report on dogs with blue tongues on the Chow page. Seriously :-)

Re: “Independent Spirit

OK. I just have to say that Chow is for FOOD, not BOOZE. I strongly suggest that you create a separate page for local drinkeries, and just report on food on the Chow page. Seriously. Fifty percent of the time, Chow comments on breweries, etc.
