FOOD BANK EXPANSION SEEKING $1.5 MILLION

The Food Bank of Western New York is seeking $1.5 million in charitable giving to build additional office space, a new garage for its vehicles and a community room for nutrition education at its Holt Street facility.

The Food Bank also will upgrade its freezer mechanical system and install a generator to keep perishables fresh in case of a power failure.

Clem Eckert, executive director, said he hopes to complete the improvements within six months. The Food Bank, which has a $3 million annual budget, plans to mail requests for donations over the Thanksgiving holiday.
