I suggest taking away their little orange spoons.
And the rest of their flatware, which frankly would do some of them a bit of good. Maybe they could donate the excess from their own pantries to a community food pantry/soup kitchen.
And just in case you didn’t know what the .gov calls ‘food insecurity,’ they aren’t talking about folks starving, getting ricketts, scurvy, or other real problems with nutrition.
You wanted a t-bone steak, but could only afford ground chuck? Food insecure. Iceberg lettuce instead of organic kale? Food insecure. Forced to settled for a smaller candy bar? Food insecure.
There really are people who need help. Hell, I’ve been one of them, which is why I contribute when I can; I might need it again someday. But the .gov’s warping and distorting of the definition isn’t about helping more people.
It’s about convincing more people they need the .gov’s help just to build up their petty bureaucratic empires, and to infiltrate people’s lives to exert control.
