Hey, it’s not too late to get two free tacos at Jack in the Box today! But there’s a hitch: You have to fill your car with gas. Hey, what’s not to like about a promotion that pushes unhealthy, high-fat food (and promotes neighborhood dead zones with its drive-through restaurants) by incentivizing a practice that destroys the environment? Meanwhile, people who use food stamps—a demographic that disproportionately eats at places like Jack in the Box—are finding it harder and harder to make ends meet as food prices head ever higher.
