    I agree. What I find ironic locally, is the metrop passed an ordinance forbidding a private citizen from feeding a homeless more than one item and more than one peerson without paying for a permit or if youve prepared the food in a non-regulated kitchen.

    Theyve added some very costly fees and charges along with types of outrageously priced "restaurant-quality" equipment that must be installed in your home in order to "qualify" to feed another human in need.

    Do you ever wonder how prior generations survived without all the "protection" we now get from various unelected, unaccountable regulatory bodies? I certainly do.

    Probably something that started from people not wanting a homeless shelter/soup kitchen in their neighborhood. Honestly, it's understandable, property values and all that. It's the NIMBY syndrome. (Not In My Back Yard)

    Yes everyone feels compassion for the homeless until they camp out in your back yard

    Their reason is that giving a hungry person food from a "non compliant" faccility (your home cooking you feed to your family and friends every day) could get a hungry person sick.

    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.

    This is so sad. You'd think members of a city council would opposena lot of these actions. Personally I feel that these new regulations locally will contribute to the increasing crime rate. I mean, when someone is desparate, they do things. It might not be right, but they will steal or break in or rob to feed themselves. Then local city jails have to pay for their lodging and nourishments.
