Fined for feeding the homeless?!

Leslie Brown

Got totalitarianism?!

Ya’ll do know that San Antonio’s mayor is practically a Socialist don’t you? (1)

A San Antonio chef who has been feeding the homeless for the last six years without incidence has been fined $2,000 by the city.

This lady (whom I now LOVE!) is refusing to pay the fine and has secured a lawyer.

Apathy and ignorance have put our nation in the shape it is in, and it’s time for some fighters to stand up and take both our country and sanity back.

The time is always right to do what is right.

Cheever’s fine is the latest in a trend of cities cracking down on unpermitted people trying to feed the homeless. Last year, a 90-year-old man was warned against feeding the homeless in Florida. According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, 31 cities nationwide have taken action “to restrict or ban the act of food-sharing.”

The San Antonio City Council’s Quality of Life committee met Tuesday to discuss the situation, and, according to the San Antonio Express News, is fine with Cheever’s serving food from her food truck or serving only packaged food from her personal vehicle in order to be in compliance with food safety standards, which doesn’t sit well with Cheever.

Her meals normally consist of fresh vegetable soup, a main such as lamb meatballs or coq au vin and a dessert.

“I went to culinary school and got my food safety certification,” she said. “We’re careful with the food and so this is really hard to read that the police chief and the health department said that I was a danger to the community and they’re advocating passing out granola bars versus fresh vegetables.

“I think it’s insulting and not compassionate and the policy needs to be changed. I’m not going to settle and I’m not going to pay the fine and I’m not going to stop. They can come out every Tuesday and write me up a ticket and we’ll just start collecting them.”
