Preparations Underway For New Food Shelf In Bloomington

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (WCCO) – Workers are putting the final touches on a new and improved food shelf and service center in Bloomington.

The group, Volunteers Enlisted to Assist People, will open the facility on Jan. 6.

Executive Director Susan Russell Freeman says their new digs will include a number of new features, including the creation of new programs to do more than just give people food.

“They help people with nutrition,” Freeman said. “We are doing basic needs assessments, we’ve never been able to do that before, to find out what is really the cause, and be able to reach down and do more with them.”

There are more than 1,000 volunteers who work for the organization.
