Minneapolis wants to shut down Sharing & Caring Hands because the Twins don't want it next to their new ballpark.

Sharing & Caring Hands needs your support.

The City of Minneapolis has threatened to remove Mary Jo Copeland's restaurant license and in turn her ability to serve meals to thousands of the poor and hungry. This move has been raised because of alleged security concerns, and comes on the heels of the new baseball park being built across the street from the facility.

Those who would suffer from this are the poor, the disabled, the elderly, families with children, and people suffering from mental illness who come for a warm meal.

There is a City Council meeting on April 25th and we need thousands of people to call the Mayor's office and tell lhim you support Mary Jo's work and you oppose any move to remove Mary Jo's restaurant license. Please call today or before April 25th.

Contact Mayor R.T. Rybak's ("R" is for Raymond, I just learned) policy aide, Erica Prosser at 612-673-2133 or email her at erica.prosser@ci.minneapolis.mn.us

A march is being coordinated by the community to protest this move. Tentative time for the march is Thursday, April 17, at 12:30 p.m. Call 612-338-4640 to confirm the time.
