A U.S. federal court has ruled that people have the Constitutional right to distribute food in a public place. The homeless can now be fed in public places without the Good Samaritans fearing arrest for their kind act!

  1. Well, bloody hell! I have friends in California who were told they could no longer distribute food to the homeless. Thank God for this victory!

      It’s sad that they had to make a federal case out of it before a court finally decided the law was unconstitutional. A 90-year old man and two priests were arrested just for handing out food to the homeless in a public place.

  3. I did not know this was against the law!!!! I’m glad common sense prevailed somewhere!

  4. This is the way it should be
