Los Angeles could be the next urban community to ban feeding the homeless in public spaces. The proposed ordinance would address loitering by restricting giving food to the disadvantaged, only allowing it to happen in areas like homeless shelters and soup kitchens.

What’s your take? How do feel about banning the feeding of the needy? Do you think the old adage “Out of Sight, Out of Mind” applies here?

Why does it matter? What's wrong with feeding in shelters. That is their mission.There are safety and health concerns. I agree

Why do you look for a conspiracy behind every rock?

It is amazing that we find ways to justify elitism.Thanks for sharing this Tanya and to those who agree with this,all I have to say is SHAME ON YOU!

The elected officials that came up with this should be required to spend a day in the shoes of a homeless person.

Unfortunate sign of the times. Rich get richer and the poor get poorer

Are you telling me that churches will not be able to reach out and feed those in need,because some people are offended?
