RENO, Nev. (AP) - The City of Reno is looking for a new location to feed more than 200 homeless people daily after shutting down the We Care Volunteers site.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports (https://on.rgj.com/1KoU35q ) volunteers are speaking with the city council Wednesday to figure out an alternative location.

Code Enforcement Manager Alex Woodley says Since We Care began serving meals to the homeless on the property of the Morris Burner Hotel.

The meals at the hotel were served Monday through Thursday from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Woodley says the meals were being served at a time when people are hungrier and more inebriated, which leads to more conflicts.

We Care Volunteers president Amber Dobson says she hopes the city finds a place for them to serve, but she hopes the feeding time doesn’t change.
