Feeding The Homeless? Now You Get To Go To Jail
In Florida Food Not Bombs activists get arrested for feeding the homeless, chanting “Food is a right, not a privilege”.
Twice a week, these activists gather in the park to feed the homeless and every time, they are arrested. “3 more activists arrested for breaking the group feeding ordinance in Orlando. This makes 15 total arrests in the past 2 weeks.”
Orlando has a city ordinance that prohibits sharing food with large groups of people.
The mayor of Orlando is calling the activists “food terrorists” and says the activists are seeking attention more than wanting to feed people.
