Feeding bodies and souls
(and exercising their constitutional rights)

Each Sunday, a picnic shelter in Orlando's Langford Park becomes the First Vagabonds Church of God, where homeless people receive food for their bodies and souls. Check it out in this nice little video from the Orlando Sentinel.

In 2006, the church and Orlando Food Not Bombs sued the city over rules that limited the number of times they could share food with homeless and hungry people in city parks. A federal judge ruled the city ordinance violated their First Amendment rights to free speech and free exercise of religion.
