National homeless group says Gainesville criminalizes the homeless and those who help them


The limit on the number of people the St. Francis House can feed in one day has been lifted for Sunday, July 4th. The house has obtained permission from the city to feed more people. St. Francis House will be providing traditional American meals for the holiday. This comes one day after the National Coalition for the Homeless released a report saying meal limitations for the homeless population in Gainesville exacerbates the challenges faced by those without a home. WUFT-FM’s Brittany Thompson reports.
