KENOSHA, WI (WLIP)–Kenosha’s Shalom Center held the opening of the new home for its food pantry Thursday.

Executive Director Tamarra Coleman told the crowd gathered for the event that the new facility is a reality because of support from the Kenosha Community.



The Homecoming Ceremony included a ribbon cutting at the building on 39th Avenue and 43rd Street.

The new section of the building adds 10-thousand square feet and paid for by an anonymous donor.

Clients will use the building beginning next month.

The center says that they gave out over 1 million pounds of food last year.
