Foiled in FL from Feeding the Hungry?

November 5, 2014

According to the Independent, "A 90-year-old man is facing up to 60 days in jail for feeding the needy due to a new law that bans people in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, from meal-sharing with the public.

The new regulations require groups to be at least 500 feet away from residential properties and food sites are restricted to one per city block, but charities have criticised the rules as forms of (implementing) social cleansing."

Several cities in the US will be putting in force similar laws soon.
