"The Restaurant Meals Program, once approved by the county, allows the homeless, mentally ill and otherwise disabled to use food-stamp benefits at restaurants that participate and are able to profit from the privatization of federal dollars," reads the Facebook page. "The current form of government assistance provides little incentive for the homeless to apply for benefits, since bulk, uncooked food is difficult to manage, budget, consume or store. This program would allow local homeless easier access to food, as well as use of public restrooms."
