St. Francis House Unable To Feed More than 130 People
Every year the St. Francis House in Gainesville serves hundreds of meals to the homeless on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Right now, the organization is limited to 130 meals a day under a City of Gainesville special use permit; and that limit also applies during the holiday season.
Executive Director Kent Vann says he wants to see that number lifted for the two holidays. City officials say they're working with St. Francis House to come up with a set of recommendations that will be given to the City Commission. A resolution could be reached as early as the end of this week.
