KC Council vote on ‘food sharing’ permit to help the homeless is delayed

The council postponed until June 12 a vote on a new permit for organizations that go to parks and other venues to feed the homeless. The measure is designed to ensure that food delivered to the homeless is safe and to address neighborhood concerns about homeless camps. But some people have perceived it as an effort to limit help to the homeless, which advocates of the new rule staunchly denied.
