The organization is in the process of finalizing a deal to partner with the Vermont Farmers Food Center in Rutland. The plan calls for a new, 4,000-square-foot distribution center. It would be built next to the Winter Farmers Market.
"Right now we're bringing it down in trucks, so this will be a great benefit both to the Foodbank and to all of the people in the Rutland County area," said John Sayles, the CEO of the Vermont Foodbank.
The Foodbank hopes to have a lease signed by early January. The goal is to then begin construction and have a new space open by the summer.
