Food Not Bombs Feeds Hungry Folks at Santa Cruz City Hall

On June 30th, a new incarnation of Santa Cruz Food Not Bombs served up a healthy and hearty meal to dozens of hungry people in front of Santa Cruz City Hall. The collaborative effort was in response to the City of Orlando, Florida jailing volunteers of Orlando Food Not Bombs, as well as Keith McHenry, who helped to start the Food Not Bombs movement over 30 years ago. Food Not Bombs chapters volunteer around the world to end the criminalization of poverty, which in Santa Cruz includes police waking and ticketing people who are sleeping at night.

Wednesday Jul 6th, 2011 8:06 PM the City of Santa Cruz and its SCPD for being "friendly" that nite, regarding City Hall campus, which I believe BELONGS to the people in this city. Even with the grass being off-limits now, it's a great spot for outdoor small-group gatherings. Beautiful, lots of seating on the stone walls, room to park bikes or backpacks...

and there are many memories planted there.

It seems tragic that City bosses made the campus off-limits for those who need a place to sleep now: as ever Santa Cruz tightens the noose and becomes more restrictive every time a need shows itself regarding the double-bind law against camping/sleeping for displaced and homeless people.

But hey, they let us eat and the food was excellent!
