It's a war against the hungry! Good Samaritans are being ticketed, fined, and jailed for opening up their hearts and feeding the homeless and hungry.
Joan Cheever, founder of the nonprofit mobile food truck Chow Train, has fed homeless people for the last 10 years. Last week, San Antonio police officers gave Cheever a ticket with a potential fine of $2,000 for transporting and serving food without a permit. Cheever does have a permit for her food truck. But, on the day of the ticket, Cheever was serving food out of another van which she did not have a food permit for.
Is this a legitimate regulation of food safety laws or a violation of Cheever's religious rights?
