Houston stops homeless outreach
Bobby and Amanda Herring spent more than a year providing food to homeless people in downtown Houston every day. They fed them, left behind no trash and doled out warm meals peacefully without a single crime being committed, Bobby Herring said.

That ended two weeks ago when the city shut down their "Feed a Friend" effort for lack of a permit. And city officials say the couple most likely will not be able to obtain one.

"We don't really know what they want, we just think that they don't want us down there feeding people," said Bobby Herring, a Christian rapper who goes by the stage name Tre9. ...

We had a similar problem working at the Waterfront Rescue Mission. We could not let Church groups come in with pre cooked meals. We also were not allowed to let any homeless person take any food out of the Mission (which they would do at tiomes to have something to eat later) because the health Dept. said "The person might take a sandwich and leave it on a park bench and forget it. Then days later, it would spoil, and another person might pick it up and eat it and get sick. So it would be the Missions fault" So, under the threat of a fine, we had to keep people from taking food out of the Mission. Beyond Sad!

"Anyone serving food for public consumption, whether for the homeless or for sale, must have a permit, said Kathy Barton, a spokeswoman for the Health and Human Services Department. To get that permit, the food must be prepared in a certified kitchen with a certified food manager."

Of course. Certified by a government agency, who are self-appointed experts in cooking safety, as in most other fields. "See my degree? I'm an expert. You can't feed the homeless with out buying a permit, serf." No self-serving justification of her job here. Just concern about the homeless not eating well. What a wagon-load of honey.

To think-somone, somewhere, at some point had to have essereplayntially said something to the effect of-'Hey, let's stop that couple who feeds those people' Who thinks that way? Seriously, Christian or not, who thinks that way? That person needs more help than any hungry homeless person.Someone needs to fervently pray for that odd-minded person and sit them down and tell them they're not part of the solution and feeding hungry people without harming anyone in any way is love personified and that thinking I'll of

The article is a bit of a non event since it tells us...

Boyd said the Herrings, or any like-minded individuals, could use her organization to connect with more than 200 groups and agencies that provide aid to the homeless and possibly stake out a partnership.

The city of Houston, Texas is in league with Satan if they do not wish a Christian group to help feed the homeless.
