Kansas City’s attempt to restrict good deeds is the wrong way to deal with homeless issues

Though well intentioned, an ordinance in front of the Kansas City Council is overbearing in its attempt to regulate efforts by groups and individuals to serve food to needy people. If the crux of the problem is littering and loitering, the city should target those offenses by aggressively enforcing existing ordinances, not by making potential lawbreakers of well-meaning volunteers.
