Freedom of assembly a threat to LEOs.
"you need a permit."
"who you with?"
"why are you filming me?" "why are you filming me?!"
"pack this stuff up!"

Rev although I think it is ridicules it is the law, no you can't just go feed people without proper permits. On top of getting the permits they want to know how many will be fed at a time, do you have enough bathrooms to serve all. I know this because we tried to set up and feed the hungry twice a month, but the legal red tape is unreal.

I know of a church that does it like this, they have church services where as they have what is called a pot luck, I am guessing that is OK because it isn't really a organized feed the hungry type thing, but the church will send their bus to pick folks up around noon and bring them to the church ( yes they do it around noon so folks may go to their own churches before coming if they wish to help ) they eat first than have a church service and then eat again, any and all food left over is sent with the folks to take with them, they have been getting away with this for a couple of years now but if they said they where going to feed the hungry every Sunday they would need all kinds of paper work. :rolleyes:
