    The fact that, they were able to get as far as feeding people, shows how much BS that law actually is.

    What do you tell the police when you see something like that?

    "911, what's your emergency?"

    "Come quick, 3 men are feeding the homeless in a park!"

    Florida has once again shown they have the dumbest laws.

    Can't they give food to people as not representing any private groups?

    The article says this about the legal requirements for handing out food:

    "The ordinance — the fourth one that Fort Lauderdale has passed this year concerning the homeless — requires groups handing out food to homeless to be at least 500 feet away from residential properties. It limits feeding sites for homeless to one in any given city block, and prevent feeding sites from being within 500 feet of each other."

    They could probably take the city to court for civil rights violations under Florida Statute §761.01-05.
