Can't feed the homeless without a permit

So they'd rather let them starve than eat non-certified food??? Ridiculous liberal laws and regulations make the perfect the enemy of the good.

City puts a stop to homeless outreach

Couple must have proper permit to continue feeding dozens each day

Anyone serving food for public consumption, whether for the homeless or for sale, must have a permit, said Kathy Barton, a spokeswoman for the Health and Human Services Department. To get that permit, the food must be prepared in a certified kitchen with a certified food manager.

The regulations are all the more essential in the case of the homeless, Barton said, because "poor people are the most vulnerable to foodborne illness and also are the least likely to have access to health care."
