Ground prepped for food bank
Work started Monday on Marion’s new food bank at Cedar and Main Sts. Ceremonial groundbreaking was May 26.
Gene Winkler, Marion Advancement Campaign treasurer and liaison for the food bank, estimates that the work will take 90 days.
“They’re gonna get the cement work done in the next couple of weeks so we’ll be ready to start on the building,” he said.
Workers are leveling the ground and installing cement slabs and parking spots.
“When they get done, we’ll be all ready,” Winkler said.
