Plans to open a West Richland food bank were unexpectedly delayed just before the scheduled mid-October opening date at the West Richland Senior Center.
Space to accommodate two freezers and a refrigerator as well as enough electrical outlets proved to be a challenge at the senior center on North 60th Avenue, said Bill Kitchen, executive director of Tri-Cities Food Bank.
The Tri-Cities Food Bank is seeking a new location and hasn’t given up on opening in West Richland, Kitchen said.
“We’ll either start paying rent or start looking at a capital project,” he said. “The numbers are there, the need is there, so we’re trying to do the best thing that we can.”
