Ribbon cutting for new SEMO Food Bank in Cape Girardeau County

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KBSI) – A ribbon cutting ceremony took place in Jackson today for the new Southeast Missouri Food Bank.

The food bank’s Cape Girardeau County location provides increased storage capacity, specifically for disaster relief such as bottled water and canned goods.

Joey Keys the Chief Executive Officer of the SEMO Food Bank: “This has been a long time coming, we’re talking about for years, a long time with construction all of our contractors we appreciate all they’ve done, our board when we were making decisions on how to do this, how to move forward, I think we made some of the best decisions we could have made as you can see, I think it looks really, really great.”

The food bank also adds a second volunteer center where Backpacks for Friday kits will be packed and items from the food drive will be sorted.
