Bad for potlucks, folks?

Unfortunately, the Health Authority in Spokane has a
history of cracking down on public consumption of
home-cooked food in any context.  I remember when they
banned home-prepared food, even sandwiches, from being
provided to youth at Crosswalk, a centre to help
street kids.  The reason given was health risks from
improperly prepared food -- but these kids often have
to resort to eating out of trash bins, are they really
in danger from a couple of homemade sandwiches or a
bowl of soup?  This type of thing is a ridiculous
abuse of authority to "protect us from ourselves", and
should be fought with every bit of power at the
people's disposal.
