More U.S. Cities are Making it Harder to Feed the Homeless

An increasing number of American cities are making it harder to feed the homeless. Is it because human generosity is less profitable for cities nowadays?

“The new rules, ostensibly to protect those getting the food from any illnesses from poorly prepared foods, require charity groups that distribute food to comply with the same standards of a restaurant dishing up meals for tourists visiting Fort Lauderdale’s beaches. That doesn’t just mean wearing gloves; it includes providing toilets and an array of specific equipment.”
–Suzanne McGee, “The Guardian”
