The prob I see with it is 1. Its a revenue venerator for the city, 2. The city cares less for a genuine homeless now, so why do they care about a hungry family on fhe sfreet's "health"? 3. Why arent they going after "Lil Johnny's L3munade Stand"?
Theres families anf small groups that tried to continue bringing the food to the ones ln the street "before and after" the once a year deed. There were many who couldnt get to these annual occassions and the rest of the year, starve.
Bringing a bag lunch or wrapped dinner to pockets of homeless was doing some good ..now you have to pay $$$$ just to help another human in need
sounds like a money scheme to me. The city should be ashamed of themselves profiting off of those who are less fortunate.
oh and they are hitting the lemonade stands
The Battle Against Lemonade Stand Crackdowns - Business - The Atlantic Wire
is just one article of this "unacceptable" behavior.
