San Jose offers homeless services before final sweep

San Jose is connecting homeless residents with resources days before it sweeps them from a sprawling encampment near Columbus Park. Dozens of unhoused residents strolled down Spring Street Thursday afternoon for food and services, ranging from legal help, youth and veteran services and health care. The city partnered with Santa Clara County and groups such as the Humane Society Silicon Valley and the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley to bring a wide range of resources to nearly 90 people living at the camp, down from a few hundred several months ago. The event featured roughly 20 booths and is part of the city’s plan to get unhoused residents ready before the city clears out the camp on Sept. 1.

Massive Silicon Valley food bank held up by appeal

Second Harvest of Silicon Valley could be close to breaking ground on its new headquarters in Alviso, but the nonprofit food bank must clear one more hurdle. Plans for the massive, 250,000 square-foot warehouse—which will serve as a food handling facility with 31 loading docks, operations offices and a volunteer center—received approval from San Jose’s planning division assistant director in late May. Then one Alviso resident, Marcos Espinoza, filed an appeal opposing the project on the grounds it needs further environmental review. The San Jose City Council will decide Tuesday whether to grant Espinoza’s appeal, or deny it and let the project move ahead.
