The Melville and District Food Bank is in need of a new building, as the current one occupied is too tiny.
The president of the food bank says the old house is only 6-hundred square feet in size, so it’s difficult to maneuver around and carry out day-to-day operations.
Colleen Gorecki says they sent a letter to the provincial government, asking if they would be gracious to allow them to move into an empty SLGA building in Melville, and hopes to get a reply.
She says they are keeping their options open if the SGLA building request doesn’t pan out, such as possibly adding to the current building or moving into another dwelling.
In the meantime, a new building campaign is ongoing and donations can be made at the Horizon Credit Union in Melville.
