Thousands of homeless people in downtown Houston who were accustomed to seeing  and utilizing the free meals provided by the Feed A Friend program will see them no more…

Bobby and Amanda Herring dispensed thousands of meals over the last year to homeless people in downtown Houston without incident or issues have been shut down by the city because they don’t have the proper food permits.  The city’s Health and Human services department says anyone providing food for public consumption must have it prepared in a certified kitchen by a certified food manager.  The city acknowledges the Feed A Friend program probably will not be able to meet the stringent criteria for the food card.   Herron, who is a Christian rap artist who goes by the name of Tre9 says  homeless people are among the most susceptible to food borne illnesses due to their scrounging for food in unsanitary places, including dumpsters.  Herran and his wife prepared the food with help from friends in their home, and it was transported in coolers to keep it warm or hot until it was served to the homeless.  Helpers with the Feed A Friend program say they are not aware of any issues arising from the thousands of meals they have served.
