West Hollywood : Breakfasts for Homeless

June 22, 1989

Free breakfasts will be provided at the temporary homeless shelter in West Hollywood Park Auditorium for six months beginning July 1.

In a 3-2 vote, the City Council approved $5,000 for the breakfast program, which will provide the homeless with fresh fruit and protein snack bars.

Council members Abbe Land and John Heilman voted against the proposal, asking the council to delay a decision until after discussions on the 1989-90 budget begin this week.

During budget talks, city officials are expected to discuss the possibility of discontinuing the temporary facility and putting funds into the development of a permanent shelter, Land said.

"My concern was that we would approve this, and two weeks later we would eliminate the whole program," Land said.
