Churches Limited to Serving 20 Meals a Day to Homeless
There could be an answer to the prayers of Gainesville ministries that want to feed more homeless people than current limits allow.
Monday night, city commissioners took up several recommendations for loosening current city rules.
Right now, churches can only feed 20 people per day because of zoning codes.
Commissioners could possibly change it.
They could also reconsider how many people churches shelter... as well as the distance between churches that shelter and feed the homeless.
The community development commission has spent nearly a year coming up with recommendations in six areas for commissioners to consider... including much wider latitude to serve lunchtime meals with a "city manager permit."
