A program that provides food and clothing to homeless people is having a hard time finding a new space to host its usual outdoor dinners.

Salt on the Street, which has provided homeless services in Bellingham for nearly eight years, lost its most recent dinner location this month, and also will lose donated space where it stores food and clothing.

The ministry has stored supplies, made coffee and washed dishes in a donated space at the Lighthouse Mission for about a year, said coordinator Ken Neal.

But as the mission prepares to start work on a new women's shelter, the space must be vacated to accommodate construction.

That's left Neal with the task of finding an affordable or free space to work from.

Additionally, the owner of the parking lot adjacent to the downtown Rainbow Center, where dinners were most recently held, also has asked Salt on the Street to find a new space, Neal said.

The dinners will resume when a new space is found.
