In an effort to raise money for a new facility to feed Tampa's homeless and working poor, officials from Trinity Cafe asked county commissioners this week for something to help with the Nebraska Avenue project: taxpayer money.
Funds have already been raised for the project - which would relocate the cafe from inside The Salvation Army on Florida Avenue to its own building at Nebraska Avenue near Columbus - but about $200,000 is needed before the cafe can be completed, said Cindy Davis, program director.
Davis is hoping for grant money and donations to finish the project.
