SIKESTON, MO (KFVS)- A $1 million grant is being put to good use at the Southeast Missouri Food Bank.
Part of the money is being used to expand the distribution center in Sikeston. It will more than double in size when its finished.
Each of the food bank's 180 partners will get a dolly and their choice of a laptop computer or a freezer.
"We are so excited," said Missy Rice with SEMO Food Bank Agency Relations. "We love the home that we're in but we are ready to have a lot more room. It's going to allow us to actually get in more food so we're able to get more food out. So in the long run, it will help out the people that is receiving the food."
The grant came from the Missouri Foundation for Health.
