The Coalition to End Meal Limits NOW presented Gainesville City Commissioners with a mock "Oscar" for "Best Fantasy".

By

The Coalition to End Meal Limits NOW presented Gainesville City Commissioners with a mock award for “Best Fantasy” on Thursday night in a unique effort to force Commissioners to hear about the enforced 130-meal limit for the homeless. The Commissioners were not amused, and could not accept the mock oscar by law. Gainesville City Commissioners placed an ordinance on the number of meals homeless shelters, like St. Francis House, can serve to 130 forcing them to deny any homeless or hungry residents who come afterwards. But, Saint Francis House will continue with the meal limit until commissioners repeal the ordinance. The Coalition to End Limits NOW members say they will continue in their fight to end meal limits in Gainesville.
