ASHLAND, Ore.,--There are some new changes coming to the emergency food bank in Ashland. The demand has grown in community and the bank is running out of space. They've just started to build an additional storage building. So far, they've raised $80,000 dollars but are still short $20,000. They started fundraising last year. President of the food bank, George Kramer puts into prospective how much the need for food in the community has grown.

"We have seen the demand just grow exponentially. We serve almost 700 households, about 17 to 18 hundred people every month. The community has been pronominal donating food to us, the food drives and we're simply running out of storage," says Kramer.

The new building will also make the employees and volunteers jobs easier. They won't have to unload the palettes anymore, they can just stack them in the new building.

You can find the link to donate on their Facebook page.
