Feeding The Homeless BANNED In Major Cities All Over America

What would you do if you came across someone on the street that had not had anything to eat for several days?  Would you give that person some food?  Well, the next time you get that impulse you might want to check if it is still legal to feed the homeless where you live.  Sadly, feeding the homeless has been banned in major cities all over America.  Other cities that have not banned it outright have put so many requirements on those that want to feed the homeless (acquiring expensive permits, taking food preparation courses, etc.) that feeding the homeless has become "out of reach" for most average people.  Some cities are doing these things because they are concerned about the "health risks" of the food being distributed by ordinary "do-gooders".  Other cities are passing these laws because they do not want homeless people congregating in city centers where they know that they will be fed.  But at a time when poverty and government dependence are soaring to unprecedented levels, is it really a good idea to ban people from helping those that are hurting?

This is just another example that shows that our country is being taken over by control freaks.  There seems to be this idea out there that it is the job of the government to take care of everyone and that nobody else should even try.

But do we really want to have a nation where you have to get the permission of the government before you do good to your fellow man?

It isn't as if the government has "rescued" these homeless people.  Homeless shelters all over the nation are turning people away each night because they have no more room.  There are many homeless people that are lucky just to make it through each night alive during the winter.

Sometimes a well-timed sandwich or a cup of warm soup can make a world of difference for a homeless person.  But many U.S. cities have decided that feeding the homeless is such a threat that they had better devote law enforcement resources to making sure that it doesn't happen.

This is so twisted.  In America today, you need a "permit" to do almost anything.  We are supposed to be a land of liberty and freedom, but these days government bureaucrats have turned our rights into "privileges" that they can revoke at any time.

The following are some of the major U.S. cities that have attempted to ban feeding the homeless....

Philadelphia

Mayor Nutter recently banned feeding homeless people in many parts of Philadelphia where homeless people are known to congregate....

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter has announced a ban on the feeding of large numbers of homeless and hungry people at sites on and near the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

Mayor Nutter is imposing the ban on all outdoor feedings of large numbers of people on city parkland, including Love Park and the Ben Franklin Parkway, where it is not uncommon for outreach groups to offer free food.

Nutter says the feedings lack both sanitary conditions and dignity.

Orlando

Last June, a group of activists down in Orlando, Florida were arrested by police for feeding the homeless in defiance of a city ordinance....

Over the past week, twelve members of food activist group Food Not Bombs have been arrested in Orlando for giving free food to groups of homeless people in a downtown park. They were acting in defiance of a controversial city ordinance that mandates permits for groups distributing food to large groups in parks within two miles of City Hall. Each group is allowed only two permits per park per year; Food Not Bombs has already exceeded their limit. They set up their meatless buffet in Lake Eola knowing that they would likely be arrested as a result.

Houston

Down in Houston, a group of Christians was recently banned from distributing food to the homeless, and they were told that they probably would not be granted a permit to do so in the future even if they applied for one....

Bobby and Amanda Herring spent more than a year providing food to homeless people in downtown Houston every day. They fed them, left behind no trash and doled out warm meals peacefully without a single crime being committed, Bobby Herring said.

That ended two weeks ago when the city shut down their "Feed a Friend" effort for lack of a permit. And city officials say the couple most likely will not be able to obtain one.

"We don't really know what they want, we just think that they don't want us down there feeding people," said Bobby Herring, a Christian rapper who goes by the stage name Tre9.

Dallas

Dallas has also adopted a law which greatly restricts the ability of individuals and ministries to feed the homeless....

A Dallas-area ministry is suing the city over a food ordinance that restricts the group from giving meals to the homeless.

Courts dismissed Dallas’ request for a summary judgment last week, saying the case, brought up by pastor Don Hart (in video above) may indeed be a violation of free exercise of religion, as protected by the Texas Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the blog Religion Clause reported.

In the court filing, the ministry leaders argue that their Christian faith requires them to share meals with the homeless (Jesus did!) and that the requirement that even churches and charities provide toilets, sinks, trained staff and consent of the city keeps them from doing so.

Las Vegas

A few years ago, Las Vegas became the first major U.S. city to specifically pass a law banning the feeding of homeless people....

Las Vegas, whose homeless population has doubled in the past decade to about 12,000 people in and around the city, joins several other cities across the country that have adopted or considered ordinances limiting the distribution of charitable meals in parks. Most have restricted the time and place of such handouts, hoping to discourage homeless people from congregating and, in the view of officials, ruining efforts to beautify downtowns and neighborhoods.

But the Las Vegas ordinance is believed to be the first to explicitly make it an offense to feed “the indigent.”

That law has since been blocked by a federal judge, and since then many U.S. cities have been very careful not to mention "the indigent" or "the homeless" by name in the laws they pass that are intended to ban feeding the homeless.

New York City

New York City has banned all food donations to government-run homeless shelters because the bureaucrats there are concerned that the donated food will not be "nutritious" enough.

Yes, this is really true.

The following is from a recent Fox News article....

The Bloomberg administration is now taking the term “food police” to new depths, blocking food donations to all government-run facilities that serve the city’s homeless.

In conjunction with a mayoral task force and the Health Department, the Department of Homeless Services recently started enforcing new nutritional rules for food served at city shelters. Since DHS can’t assess the nutritional content of donated food, shelters have to turn away good Samaritans.

Can you believe that?

The bureaucrats are officially out of control.

In America today, it seems like almost everything is illegal.

One church down in Louisiana was recently ordered to stop giving out water because it did not have a government permit.

Well, I don't know about you, but I sure am going to give a cup of cold water to someone if they need it whether I have a permit or not.

It is as if common sense has totally gone out the window in this nation.

Over in New Hampshire, a woman is being sued for planting flowers in her own front yard.

This is the kind of thing that makes me glad that I have moved to a much more rural location.  People in the country tend to be much more relaxed.

Sadly, those that love to micro-manage others continue to get the upper hand in America.  Back in January, 40,000 new laws went into effect all over America.  The politicians continue to hit us with wave after wave of regulations and laws with no end in sight.

All of this is making America a very unpleasant place in which to live.

    It doesn’t matter. We are all called to charity and to love our neighbors following the example of Christ. I would be honored to be persecuted for doing good like this because I know it is Christ who is being denied and persecuted as well. Our reward will be amazing. Do not fear the minions of satan. God is much more powerful!

    Until about a year ago, I never thought to wonder why Americans moved to live in my country. [They are welcome: 17% of the population,according to the 2012 census, were born abroad] However recently I have been asking. Most told me that they came to Ireland, or other European countries, to study and found that life here is just so, so much better.

    it’s not the gov doing this, it’s the rich controlling the gov, they want the poor and homeless to just disappear. And it’s not about religion, it’s about compassion, which the rich have very little of.

    This article amazes me. I’m writing a reply from a friends computer. I’m a very lucky old man. I’m not yet homeless, but I am disabled. I know what it feels like to go hungry….I try to eat 1 meal a day, but of late it’s been 1 meal every 3rd or 4th day. I didn’t qualify for food stamps, go figure. Our govt. can send all the aid it wants to other nations. I’m all for helping others. What I want to know is, whatever happened to helping our own 1st? I’m out of work (disabled) out of savings. I’m not asking for pity or charity. I’d work for a decent meal…even though I’m disabled. Even disabled, old people like me have a place in our society.

    • david95

      ” Even disabled, old people like me have a place in our society.”

      I agree with you, even if Government doesn’t.

    • Maryann Ruelle

      Being in just about the same position, I agree completely. Even if I weren’t though, I’d agree. We have to take care of our own, and EVERYONE is our own. I’m so very sorry that your meal situation is as desperate as it is.
      May God richly bless you in times ahead~

  • deborah23

    i simply can not believe what i have just read, i am appalled and flabbergasted, at this ridiculous ban. i live in the UK, and think this is totally disgusting, it is a basic human right to have food and shelter yet your government is banning the feeding of the homeless because of sanitation, and not nutritional enough !!! then let them go homeless and with out food for long periods of time, i’m sure then they would understand that a simple act of kindness of even just a sandwich can save a life and let the homeless person know that there are people out there who care about them unlike their government.

    • http://www.facebook.com/johnny.recycle Johnny Recycle

      I disagree Deb,
      Food, is Not a human right.
      To live is.

      An example. I grow my food. You do not. Please explain this “right” you claim to my effort. Explain the origin of debt you place on me?
      I do not claim “rights” to something You effort to.

        and for all you name callers before you start,,, I Was Homeless for 3 yrs. Not in some nice, warm, full of government program place like the states. northern Canada, and I had a garden outside the city to help me eat and make funds to live.
        Also to feed my friends not fearing “regulations” like what this topic is.
        We are discussing government regulating compassion, are we not. That is not a right but a virtue and most have not this.

  • Amanda

    This is so screwed up!!! My ministry is feeding the homeless!! I do it alone and by my own funds…I thought about giving out food cards (like to denny’s) but believe it or not some will actually deny them service. I will continue to feed them and if you want to fine me, go for it. Throw me in Jail but no one has the right to tell anyone they can’t offer a sandwich! They can refuse if they think it is tainted… honestly anyone out there feeding them is doing it out of their heart!! I tried to open a soup kitchen once but the paperwork and all the legal stuff and cost… with no funding was way over my head. So I have given up my home, etc. .. travel around in a mini rv and feed people. Our country has really hit the bottom of the crapper!

  • Amanda

    “Some cities are doing these things because they are concerned about the “health risks” of the food being distributed by ordinary “do-gooders”. ”

    REALLY???? Come on now…. and where do they think they would get their food if not by a do-gooder? The trash bin… and that has no heath risks?? WAKE up!!

  • reality

    i believe in helping ppl and i do on a regular basis but ive lived here in the same spot in kansas city for the last 3 yrs and most of the homeless around dont need help because they choose to not accept programs that will help them so weve started doing the same thing and calling the cops on the ppl that leave food hanging on fences and setting up tables to feed…..well the trash ends up all over our lot and the street and if they want to help then take the homeless to your part of town and open the church to them and i also now of 4 people that show up at shelters and feeding and they have a home and food. i manage a building and have tenants to protect so i watch everything like a hawk because of the neighborhood.yes we should help ppl but you all need to know and understand that most have chosen to stay homeless and refuse help and i for one am not ok with that because ive been homless and nobody to turn to in a city i wasnt from. currently i am a building manager and theatre tech for a performance art space and running a business on the side and all because i accepted the help offered and sources available……i hate the gov cuz its trash and ppl have let them have to much control but its not anybodies job to help the homeless,its their job to accept the help when available….self responsibilty

    If you stop to think about it, government is all about enforcement–traffic speeds and tickets, housing–what you can build and where and the list goes on. I think it is incidental if the government regulation does the average person any good.

  • http://www.facebook.com/lloding Laura Curry Loding

    I belong to a small community boosters club, and we had a food bank for over 20 years. The restrictions got to the point that that the time it would take to get the food to the people in need it would have required an army of volunteers.. We are just as small group trying to make a difference, and the local food bank distribution facilities made it impossible.

  • AlaskaCrabber

    Are there any laws against disposing of food in clean “Waste receptacles”?

    This is just BS pure and simple, nobody has the right to tell me I cannot help someone. You got your nasty little rule then fine, I’ll invite him to come into YOUR restaurant with me and buy him lunch or give him money so he can go in himself. Gonna outlaw that? People having lunch?

    If you do not KNOW your RIGHTS, you have none!

    “The constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the land. Any in conflict is null and void of law. MARBURY V. MADISON, 5 U.S. 137.

    Can the state arbitrarily convert a secured liberty, in this case the right to feed someone, into a privilege, and issue a license and fee for it? NO:

    “No state may convert a secured liberty into a privilege, and issue a license and fee for it”. MURDOCK v. PENNSYLVANIA, 319 U.S. 105

    If a state does attempt to convert the right into a privilege and attempts to issue a license and fee for the exercise of that privilege; can it be enforced as law? NO:

    “If the state does convert a right into a privilege and issue a license and charge a fee for it, you can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right with impunity”. SHUTTLESWORTH V. BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, 373 U.S. 262

    Did you willfully and with intent violate the law? NO:

    “Willfulness is one of the major elements, which is required to be proven in any criminal element. You will have to prove (1) that you are the party (2) that you had a method or opportunity to do the thing, and (3) that you did so with willful intent. Willful is defined as an evil motive or intent to avoid a known duty or task under the law.” U.S. v. BISHOP, 412 U.S. 346

  • Todd Parker

    Time to break the law, then. There is no moral imperative to follow laws that are in clear violation of basic morality; indeed, the moral imperative is to violate them at every possible opportunity and make outcasts of any and all who respect, enforce, and author them.

  • Skye Sterling

    This article is garbage. It is filled with unsubstantiated claims, such as “In America today, it seems like almost everything is illegal” and “This is just another example that shows that our country is being taken over by control freaks.”

    Whoever wrote this needs to leave America for once in their life and visit a developing country. Then, revise this article.

    Also, helping homeless people is not such a cut-and-dry issue, as the makers of these laws understand. The charitable person deprives themselves of resources and receives no value in return. This makes him/her stronger. The receiver of the charity receives value having done nothing for it. This makes /him/her weaker. While giving a homeless person food has the short-term effect of
    alleviating his/her hunger, it also can create a dependence on this type
    of charity in respect to the long – term.

    Yes, it is an unpopular argument. But I hope you have at least considered it thoroughly if you decide I’m an idiot.

    • Zachary S Blom

      Giving a homeless person food can also provide the nourishment and support to pick themselves up out of their situation. What you seem to be insinuating is that people will stay homeless for free food, which is irrational at best. Your logic can also be applied to absolve yourself from holding a door open for someone, helping them to their car with their groceries, pulling over when you see an accident with no emergency vehicles in sight, etc. Is the notion of helping somebody really that vulgar to you?

      How disappointing would Jesus be if he shared your philosophy? He was the son of God who could turn water into wine. Why didn’t he just open a bar? Better yet, how disappointing would Superman be if he shared your philosophy?

      I hope you consider this thoroughly before you decide you aren’t for advocating such a stance. No Man Is An Island.

  • Secret Treasure

    Well then they’d have to arrest me…I live to feed those who cannot feed themselves…I am low income and I receive food stamps when I heard that a battered womens shelter experienced a flood and lost all their food I took $70 dollars of my food stamps and bought food and snacks for the kids…wasn’t much but I did what i could do with what i had. I have even been known to see a homeless person, turn around, go to the store, buy lunch meat bread and juice and give it to them (i even bought dog food once cause the man had a dog lol). But it just tugs at my heart because who is to say that one day that won’t be you, or me and my daughter? I just hope that if i’m ever in a situation that my fellow man would find it in their heart to help out….xoxo

  • Daniel

    Feed the homeless even if it’s illegal. If you are doing what is right you shouldn’t care if it is illegal. People should be guided by what is right and wrong not what is legal or illegal. The law will inevitably make doing what is right illegal and doing what is wrong legal because the law is not guided by moral notions. I hope people won’t be complacent to the the law’s immorality and take everything the law says for granted.

  • OBKB

    I wouldn’t even regard such a “law”. They can go ahead and take me to jail. If I see a hungry person, I make sure they eat. I won’t allow anyone to tell me what I can and can’t do with the food I paid for.

  • aoism

    When an intoxicated homeless man with food allergies eats something he is allergic to and dies, I’m sure you will wish you got a permit that details the proper way to feed the needy and how to handle that situation. Also , it gives the city and other people an opportunity to have homeless advocates present, to enroll the homeless in longer term meal/housing plans, and to provide counseling services. You might feed a person for 1 day – but what about the other 364 days?

  • Uncle Arty

    It is everyone’s responsibility to make as many bag lunches as you can put together, take them to a park, and find a cop look him right in the eye and tell him you intend to give them out to as many homeless people you can find and dare him to stop you

  • Ariel Rainault

    Hello~ I live in NH. In my area there are not a lot of homeless but they do exist. I have been doing a lot of research on homelessness and why people become homeless. I myself, have been homeless before. I have noticed in certain areas it is illegal to feed the homeless. What is more striking is some of those people are children! I am trying to start a program called ‘Everyones Picnic’. From what I know, picnics are not illegal. And if I were to orchestrate people to set up these picnics in different areas then no one should get harassed for simply trying to eat. This program will give back self-esteem to many and also food in their bellies. If anyone has any ideas on who I can go to get this lifted off I would surely like to hear from them…please contact me at LadyMaverik@gmail.com ((I can no longer tolerate starving children, or the demonization of human beings)) Sincerely, Ariel!

      Yea, but it doesn’t say what we will do with them. :(

      • Maryann Ruelle

        What we DID with them was turn them into a great nation, trusting in God, a quite prosperous until the past 40 years give or take, when the powers that be started sending all our jobs overseas out of greed. That’s what we did with them, and we could do it again. United States Steel just last month FINALLY started American operations again.
        Made in America needs to come to mean something and then we will be able to feed them once again.
        The issue is, we have people willing and wanting to feed them, and they are being prevented from doing so.

      • Maryann Ruelle

        What we DID with them was build the greatest, proudest, most powerful nation, UNDER GOD, on earth. When greed and immorality began taking over 40 years ago, give or take, and all our American jobs were sent overseas, and we stopped taking care of our own, we created the situation we now have.
        Unless we turn ourselves around and become once again a people of morality and principle and most of all faith, we will fall.

  • megagirl

    Our government will send food to other countries but we cannot feed our own homeless that they refuse to take care of. Disgusting

  • Maryann Therese Ruelle

    megagirl, and everone else~I’ve struggled for 3 years to get people to make moves to care for the homeless in my area of Michigan. They are finally beginning to listen, although there is still a long way to go.
    To me, it seems that this ban on feeding the homeless with all the lame excuses given is another step in taking our religious freedoms from us.
    Granted feeding the homeless is not necessarily a religious issue, but it is one of the things Christians are mandated to do. The only solution I can see, and it applies to all the freedoms being taken from us, is that we have to FIGHT. And to do that, groups need to join and fight with one voice~

  • Ian MacLeod

    “Back in January, 40,000 new laws
    went into effect all over America. The politicians continue to hit us
    with wave after wave of regulations and laws with no end in sight.”

    Allow me to simplify this: it’s a TAKEOVER. There IS NO OTHER WORD. Don’t forget there’s a depopulation agenda in effect – Henry Kissinger’s National Policy group came up with it in 1074 and it was immediately adopted – quietly, of course. The U.N. calls it Agenda 21 (or it’s part of Agenda 21); others have other words and phrases, but it amounts to the same thing: a)killing off the “useless eaters,” and b) said useless eaters are to equal 90% of the populace. Getting Americans used to obeying useless, damaging or downright EVIL orders is part of the project, so they can be ordered onto trains to take them to the concentration camps when the time comes.

    So in the “Land of the free, home of the brave,” people are not allowed to feed those who have been made poor and even homeless by the same lying, thieving super-rich “elites” who have destroyed the economy and the value of the dollar, we are not ALLOWED to feed to the poor and homeless. Presumably we are to let them starve. We are ORDERED TO.

    “Government of the People, by the People, and for the People.” *sigh* It just never mentioned WHICH people, did it? How could we have known they were referring only to the rich? And by the way – THIS IS EVIL!!

    if you lose your compassion for these homeless hungry then you will be a goat in God’s eyes here’s the scripture better take heed to it because he is returning soon.

    31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

    32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

    33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

    34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

    35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

    36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

    37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

    38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

    39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

    40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

    41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

    42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

    43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

    44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

    45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

    46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

    King James Version (KJV)

  • Maryann Therese Ruelle

    Absolutely Jean, but I,m amazed at the fact ( and I pray I’m wrong,) that the Christians aren’t joining and taking a stand together on this. The Mayors offices couldn’t put them all in jail. This is clearly a situation in which Christians are obligated to follow God’s law over man’s law…consequences be damned!,

  • Maryann Ruelle

    I applaud all of those willing to risk anything to feed the homeless and follow our Lords commands, we must ask the Holy Spirit for guidance, not HIDE our unity in following Him, not give in to the religious persecution we now face and feed the homeless, clothe the poor, spread His word, show our faith with our lifestyles and not be brow beaten by anyone to keep quiet about our God, and our Savior. We must not do our work in secret, nor bow down to the persecution we now face, with Christ, we must meet it with the courage of the Holy Spirit and stand together as the Body of Christ~

    somehow this discussion went from something nice to the evils of dissecting religious views? shame on all of you!

  • Maryann Ruelle

    meowmix, you are absolutely right. While Christians are mandated to respond to the needs of the homeless, this is a HUMAN responsibility and should be seen as such~
