Supporters

Did you know NYC just created a new rule banning foods that don't meet a government nutrition standard from being given to the homeless? Even the classic (and harmless) NYC bagel didn't make the cut!

No good can come from limiting what food people can give to those who are homeless. How often does the food we ourselves eat, not measure up to some government nutrition standard on salt or fat content?! Doesn't this go against our freedoms to choose what to eat for themselves? This is government bureaucracy run amok, and it's completely outrageous they would target people in need, to limit what can be donated. Please sign this petition, get two friends to sign this and lets end this!

End NYC's Ban On Food Donations to the Homeless!!

How can we let one man (Bloomberg) let a homeless person stave, because the food we ourselves eat, might not measure up to some government nutrition standard on sat or fat content?! This is government bureaucracy run amok, and it's completely outrageous they would target people in need, to limit what can be donated. Please sign this petition and end this!
