Interfaith Food Ministry is celebrating the move to their new location with an Open House of Saturday. Executive Director Sue Van Son says the new facility would not have been possible without community support.

Van Son says says they have 3,500 families registered for assistance and saw a 7-8 percent increase just last month.
Van Son says they give out staples like Milk, Eggs, Peanut Butter and grains but one thing they don’t buy is cereal so they would appreciate donations.
Food is distributed Monday, Wednesday and Friday, every other week, but with the new facility and more volunteers, they hope to distribute every week by summer.
IFM is hoping people coming to the open house on Saturday will bring a food donation.
And she says there will be a special treat.
The New location is at 440 Henderson Street (behind the Beam Easy Living Center) and the open house is from 1-3 p.m. Donations can also be made on the IFM website. www.interfaithfoodministry.org)
