Blessings Under the Bridge – the nonprofit organization providing free meals under the Interstate 90 bridge every Wednesday evening – has told the city of Spokane that it’s not moving anywhere.

“If we can’t serve meals in the location we are in now, then we will start serving meals on the sidewalk nearby instead,” Kovac said/Pia Hallenberg, SR. More here.
