Houston has a problem

February 10 2011
You need a permit for that...


The Texan city of Houston has begun enforcing ordnance that restricts provision of food to those on the street by requiring anyone serving food for public consumption, whether it is given away or sold, to have a permit. The permit requires that the food is prepared in a certified kitchen with a certified food manager.

Kathy Barton, a spokeswoman for the city health and human services department, told the Houston Chronicle that "poor people are the most vulnerable to food-borne illness and also are the least likely to have access to health care."

Some local organisations and councillors are opposing this action.
