In the impoverished neighborhood of South Los Angeles, fast food is the easiest cuisine to find — and that’s a problem for elected officials who see it as an unhealthy source of calories and cholesterol.
The City Council was poised to vote Tuesday on a moratorium on new fast-food restaurants in a swath of the city where a proliferation of such eateries goes hand-in-hand with obesity.
“Our communities have an extreme shortage of quality foods,” City Councilman Bernard Parks said.
Apparently the shortage is due to…um…well, they don’t say why there’s a shortage.
A report by the Community Health Councils found 73 percent of South L.A. restaurants were fast food, compared to 42 percent in West Los Angeles.
If the moratorium is passed, Perry wants to lure restaurateurs and grocery retailers to area.
Lure them how? No word on that.
Here is the plan:
1. Ban Fast Food Restaraunts
3. Everyone eats healthy!
The California Restaurant Association says
“Sit-down restaurants don’t want to go in. If they did, they’d be there.”
But Californiastan knows better.
