Here is an excerpt from the article: “The Health Department said the group did not have a permit and was putting people at risk. “E. coli or salmonella or listeria can grow in the food,” department director Rex Archer said. “And then you give that to homeless people who are more vulnerable, they will end up in the ER and even die from that exposure.”

In the words of John McEnroe, “You Can NOT Be serious.”

So let me get this straight. There is a lower risk of death and disease from lack of food, than the risk of eating food prepared by individuals who eat the food they prepare for themselves everyday?

Chicago Expelled A Male Student 4 Days Before Graduation Because His Ex Made A Dubious Sexual Violence Claim, by Robby Soave, at reason.com. When are college bureaucrats going to realize it is above their pay grade to investigate these matters. These matters should be turned over to police investigators and the legal system.
