"this is the former coralville post office - it's just a short drive away from where the food pantry sits now. you can see there's a lot of open space here, but it won't be empty long. over here is where workers will put food and shelving. and if you look this way, this is where they'll being installing

the pantry's current location, shelf space is tight. the group takes in about a thousand pounds of food each month from community members that feeds 24-hundred people every year. and the organization's executive director says that need is growing. "food storage has been a really big obstacle for us. we've had to find creative ways to store food and at times we've had to turn donations away just because we don't have space for them." because the city of coralville owns this property, this is all happening because the council unanimously approved the move. coralville mayor john lundell says it's a good use for space that would otherwise sit empty. "i'm really pleased it'll be occupied again and there will be more activity around here and the food pantry will dress it up a little bit. it'll be great to have a tenant in here." "the agreement with the city means the food pantry is guaranteed this space for the next three years. and the best part? it's rent free. in coralville, sarah mccarthy, kcrg-tv9 news." the organization is in need of help to renovate the space. on our web story on
