New vending machines to help feed the homeless


The Central Business Improvement District has unveiled new vending machines that will be placed throughout Downtown Knoxville to help with feeding the homeless. These machines, each sponsored by a local restaurant, will allow pedestrians to insert small change and receive various bits of leftovers from the previous day. These leftovers can then be given to the more deserving examples of our homeless citizens. Should the feeding units work as well as projected, a Colt 45 dispenser will be put into use at Krutch Park in the Spring.
