LA CROSSE, WI -

The Hunger Task Force of La Crosse held an open house at its new warehouse on La Crosse's north side, at 1240 Clinton Street. 

The space is more than five times bigger than its previous location, which will help the food bank deliver more than three quarters of a million pounds of food every year. 

"There were actually times we had to turn away food donations because we couldn't manage them in the space that we have, so now with this added capability we can so much better serve our partner programs and also the community,” said Hunger Task Force Board President Nancy Fee. 

The Hunger Task Force has been serving our area for 16 years.
