A Center City ministry that serves meals to the homeless had a surprise celebrity guest for a special Thanksgiving Day meal.
Early Saturday evening, one of the religious groups that successfully challenged the City’s ban on serving food to the homeless outdoors offered thanks in the form of a meal on the Ben Franklin Parkway.
Closing arguments were scheduled for Thursday morning in a federal court challenge to Philadelphia’s ban on outdoor food programs.
Several religious groups will appear in federal court today for a hearing to decide the fate of Philadelphia’s ban on outdoor feedings.
