National Survey of 1,000 Adults
Conducted March 22-23, 2012

By Rasmussen Reports

1* Have you ever contributed food to the needy or the homeless?

2* New York City has now outlawed food donations to homeless shelters. City officials say donations must be outlawed because the city is not able to assess their nutritional content. Do you favor or oppose a policy that forbids people from donating food to the homeless in your community?

3* Think for a moment about government regulation of the foods we eat. Is there too much government regulation of the food we eat, not enough regulation of the food we eat, or about the right amount of regulation?

4* Who does a better job of providing food and shelter for the homeless—government agencies or churches and other private organizations?
