Ordinances and Statutes

Each food-sharing case involves a particular ordinance that a local government enacted to criminalize (treat as a crime) public food sharing. The enactment of such ordinances typically features city agency reports, city council (and committee) meeting minutes, and public commentary at the legislative meetings necessary to enact local laws. After enactment, the particular law is codified with the other city statutes.
