DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) – With God’s Grace mobile food pantry will officially stay open and continue to operate on Springfield Street thanks to a ruling by the Board of Zoning Appeals Tuesday night.
Owner Nicole Adkins was served early on in January and summoned to make her case to the North East Land Use Board over a zoning discrepancy. Dayton zoning officials had claimed she didn’t have the specific zoning she needed to hold her Wednesday food distributions at her warehouse that feeds around 600 families at a time, and she was threatened with a fine and jail time.
After making her case to the board, they voted that she could keep her doors open, which the Board of Zoning Appeals then accepted with their vote Tuesday night.
