FoodSharingLaw.Net publicizes critical analyses of the “food-sharing cases,” controversies that arise when activists challenge municipal ordinances—or state laws—that criminalize people who organize themselves to share food in public with people who are hungry. Some food-sharing cases are litigated and result in judicial opinions, but many transpire entirely within the court of public opinion. Hence, FoodSharingLaw.Net aggregates and comments on judicial opinions, proposed and enacted legislation, scholarship, journalism, and social media regarding the public sharing of food, with an emphasis on the United States.
FoodSharingLaw.Net is a project of Marc-Tizoc González, Professor of Law at the University of New Mexico School of Law—and former Professor of Law at the St. Thomas University School of Law in Miami Gardens, Florida. Contact the author at firstname.lastname@example.org or @marctizoc.
