Local Restrictions on Food Sharing, including Enforcement

I found this article/story to be very interesting. In the words of the reporter:

“As we reported in October, a report by the National Coalition for the Homeless found that since 2010, there has been a 47 percent increase in the number of cities that have passed or introduced legislation to restrict food sharing.”

This has made news because some activist, even pastors, have been arrested for feeding the homeless. From a public administration perspective, what are your thoughts on (1) the policy, (2) the desired social outcome, and (3) the public cost of initiating this new local law?
