Food bank moves to new home
Volunteers were busy Friday, November 30, moving items from Our Daily Bread, the Lake Whitney Ministerial Alliance (LWMA) food bank, to the new LWMA Center. The ministerial alliance broke ground on the new site last year at 100 Sims Drive in Whitney, just off Highway 22 at the corner of HCR 2124 and Sims Drive. It houses an enhanced food bank that doubles its previous space, along with reception and interview desks, offices and plenty of room for annual operations like Christmas distributions, the November food drive and other projects. LWMA will hold its first special project at the new facility Tuesday, December 18, when the Joint Committee for Christmas distribution is held to provide gifts and meal boxes to local residents.
