I-F-M Executive Director Sue Van Son says they will need 800-thousand dollars for the purchase and  renovations to the new building, located at 440 henderson Street behind the BEAM Easy Living Center.  They will borrow 600-thousand dollars in a 40 year USDA loan to buy the building;  and renovations will be paid for from funds they have raised.  Interfaith food Ministries currently serves some 2,700 local families with bi-weekly food distrubutions.  At the new location they hope to be able to offer weekly distributions of food. And Van Son says they have some ideas for the extra square footage in the new building.
