The mayor of Philadelphia has announced a ban on feeding poor people?
Private agencies must cease and desist.
Feeding poor people undermines their dignity, the mayor says. The mayor’s name is appropriate: Nutter.
These are outdoor feedings. They are held in parks.
The food may be unsanitary, the mayor warns.
Nutter says the feedings lack both sanitary conditions and dignity.
This is all about dignity. And registration. And sanitation.
As for park feedings, there will be a $150 fine, referred to as “nominal.”
The mayor says that families can eat in the parks.
