No arrests in latest food share by Tampa Food Not Bombs

There were some very tense moments – but no arrests – Tuesday morning as Tampa Police faced off against volunteers sharing food without a permit in a city park; this follows on the heels of seven arrests last Saturday when members of Tampa Food Not Bombs shared food in the same park. About 30 people, many who had slept in the streets last night, were fed. William Payton is homeless and a volunteer with Food Not Bombs who was arrested Saturday and given a trespass waning to avoid the park for a year. He called today’s action a victory and success.
