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.
This is the time of year that donations are at their highest at food shelves across the state. But recently the question of what to do with food donations that are not considered healthy foods, has caused some controversy.
