Banning soup kitchens is not the answer.

In Westminster it will become an offence to give out ‘food for free.’ Therefore the people who choose to go against this will be fined. The petition is about not letting the banning of giving away free food to be banned and not criminalising people offering to help.

It should not be an offence to give away food that will only end up in the bin to those that are hungry; it should be an offence to throw food in the bin that can be eaten by others that need it in order to survive.

 What action we want the Government to take?

We want the Government to understand that banning soup kitchens is not the answer. We want them to not ban soup kitchens and criminalise anyone that chooses to feed the homeless for free.
