With all the restrictions on selling and marketing food, it's easy to forget that even sharing food is sometimes still a crime. Despite his own stated optimism last year, Baylen Linnekin writes that it appears that bans on sharing food with the homeless and less fortunate won't be going away any time soon. It will take a concerted effort by advocates for the homeless, and supporters on the left and right, to pressure cities to repeal these inane, mean-spirited, and un-American laws.
