Re: NYC bans food donations to city's homeless shelters

Taking food throwing it in a dumpster and having homeless pick it out of dumpster and eat it is better for them then just giving them food not from a dumpster?

They recently did the same in Houston. Must be something driving this, I'd love to know what.

I'm pretty sure it's fear of litigation, like someone said earlier.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

The homeless are well known for their incessant frivolous litigation.

As a prior homeless myself, I LOL'd. No ambulance chaser wants a street tramp in his office.

My buddy told me that for the longest time the management donated the day's leftover food to a nearby homeless shelter, but the city stepped in and made them stop. The reasoning had something to do with food contamination fears. Now they throw a ****-ton of food away every night.
Rats don't read expiration dates...

Read between the lines, the food causes them more time open it, they also want to skim off the top of the donations to give to unions.

Lazy, greedy unionists. How typical, wanting a piece of the garbage-food action.

Re: NYC bans food donations to city's homeless shelters

I wonder how many homeless people will starve because of this?

Oh, yeah. Zero.
