Thanks for this article. Growing up in a working-and-poverty class family, I know that fast food is not just sustenance but also a sanctuary for millions of people in this country. Entering a Taco Bell or a Chinese buffet as a young adult was the only time I could afford to have too much of something, the only time I could feel full, pampered, and privileged. It took me a long time, a lot of education, and a ton of support to move forward. It will no doubt take similar amounts of effort for others.
