The Marana News has a very good story about the expansion of the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona - Marana Resource Center.
A buzz of excitement hummed as a group of three-dozen locals waited on the cement patio linking the past, present and future of social services in Marana.
The crowd gathered to witness the opening of two new slate grey portable office buildings, donated by Cottonwood Properties in May.
The 3,000-square-foot expansion to what is now called the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona - Marana Resource Center (formerly known as the Community Food Bank in Marana) was the result of years of work by members of the community.
The Oct. 31 ceremony was the coronation of a project launched two years ago when the food bank received an $80,000 Community Development Block Grant from Pima County, which has been given out to community facilities and infrastructure projects in low-income and rural areas since 1978.
