Food-sharing bans shock
U.N. High Commissioner

The food-sharing restrictions of cities like Orlando elicited visible shock from the U.N. High Commissioner on Human Rights, reports Maria Foscarinis, executive director of the National Law Center for Homelessness and Poverty.

The reaction came during an invitation-only briefing on human rights issues in the U.S., where Ms. Foscarinis testified about the food-sharing restrictions and other issues related to homelessness.

The High Commissioner expressed interest in working with NLCHP to address these violations, and NLCHP plans to follow up with her office.
