Soup kitchen, halfway house among organizations receiving city funding


GREENFIELD — The local soup kitchen and an effort to build a halfway house in Greenfield are in line to receive city funding next year.

The Greenfield City Council this week voted to include more than $200,000 in the city’s 2017 budget to support social service organizations serving the city’s neediest residents; they include the local soup kitchen, homeless shelter and a proposed halfway house for women.

The organizations will use the funding to support operating expenses and renovations, along with other special projects.
