Gainesville’s vote on meal limit set for this week

Mayor Craig Lowe has put the proposal to do away with the 130-meals-per-day limit on soup kitchens on the agenda for the Aug. 18 meeting, as he said he would last month.

Advocates for the homeless (and for the proposal) believe there are enough votes to overturn the limit and replace it with a three-hour window in which meals can be served, as laid out in the code changes proposed by St. Francis House.
