These food events are not an escalation of anything, as the Mayor suggested - the only escalation was on his part as he continued to attack the homeless and those who wished to help them, by passing unjust laws - rather it's a continuation of charitable services that they had already been getting before the City intervened. Most importantly, as a person who has been lucky enough to have a home, I know that it could all change in an instant. People who are blessed want to give back to the community, especially to our most vulnerable, because it is the right thing to do.
The next town hall meeting was January 9th, 2018. Citizen after citizen pleaded to work with the city council for a solution, but their wishes were all ignored. When you don't see in the video was a lady pleading to legalize keeping ferrets as pets. While I have no problem with that, I have a problem with the city council agreeing to meet with them and not with our group.
