Food Bank Opens New Expansion

The Wichita Falls Area Food Bank premiered its new warehouse expansion Tuesday.
There was an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony at the 1200 block of Midwestern Parkway.
Executive Director Mary Stengel says the expansion has been in the works for a while and the Food Bank is so grateful for the addition.

"This is an awesome day for us today. It's so exciting. Today's the ribbon cutting day and it's been a long nine months a-coming. We're so grateful," said Stengel.
 
The ribbon cutting was followed by a special gift presentation from the Wal-Mart Foundation.
Stengel says 400 pallets are part of the extension. Which is now ready to be filled with tons of food.
The land for the extension was purchased through charitable donations by businesses and organizations.
