Allow people to feed the homeless in Philadelphia

Mayor Nutter of Philadelphia has proposed a regulation against feeding the homeless in public parks. This is outrageous and will cause both the homeless and those who help the homeless to suffer. The homeless will be without food and those who try to help will be fined $150 if they just go and feed the homeless. With this new regulation it will deter people from helping the homeless and cause those who cannot get to a shelter to possibly die. The regulation puts harsh standards for the procedures for groups to feed the homeless outdoors with volunteers having a certificate, attended city classes, and the food is toughly scrutinized. HELP and show brotherly love by signing this petition and say IT IS MY CIVIL RIGHT TO BE ABLE TO HELP THE HOMELESS IN A PUBLIC PLACE.
