A Reminder: Food Not Bombs is now serving only on the weekends noon-3 PM; St. Francis may not yet be providing weekday indoor meals, only handing out meager bag lunches.
The City has still not released Public Records documenting its attack on Food Not Bombs food servers on March 10th at City Hall.
No meaningful downtown walk-in shelter is available downtown during the day regardless of life-threatening weather. Harassment of survival sleepers in public parking lots and garages continues.
