CrossRoads United Methodist Church Can’t Feed the Poor

The city rules that an Arizona United Methodist church can’t feed the poor on their property as the city rules that giving away a free pancake breakfast one day a week constitutes a city feeding program.  First of all I can’t believe that giving away a free breakfast once a week constitutes a feeding program.  Secondly I can’t grasp that they need to bus homeless people into the area to feed them pancakes.  It’s not that that hard to do this in a remote location, with probably less cost, more impact, and less controversy so it isn’t a clear cut case.  I would care more if the homeless were from that neighborhood being denied by the city (which happens lots) rather than being bussed in but that is just me.
