Hugh Hollowell, a Mennonite pastor who leads Love Wins Ministries in Raleigh, N.C., said that in late August police threatened to arrest its members for distributing sausage biscuits to the homeless. For six years, Love Wins has passed out food on weekends near a city park. The Raleigh Police Department told an ABC-TV affiliate that a city ordinance bans food distribution in city parks. Hollowell said on the group's website that it has used the sidewalk since using the park required an $800 a day permit.
