Meal limit changes begin at St. Francis House today
There is plenty of food on-hand at the St. Francis House to accommodate changes to its meal distribution limits beginning today. WUFT-FM’s Sarah Samuels says allowing unlimited meal distribution between 10 AM and 1 PM will change more than just the amount of people served.
St. Francis House Executive Director Kent Vann says it has been a long batte to bring these changes, but he expects the community will support this step.
