Feeding the Nations building warehouse in South Bend


Shovels moved the first bit of dirt Saturday in the spot where a new warehouse will be in South Bend.  The non profit Feeding the Nations is building 10,000 square foot building.  It will be the main location where the group stores food and then ships it out all over the world to people who need it.  The President of Feeding the Nations, Steve Sumrall, said the new warehouse will help them get food out quickly in emergency situations.  "We're gonna be able to assemble boxes here on site, take them to wherever the disaster is or the need is," said Sumrall.

The group is headquartered at Christ Chapel in South Bend but they've been renting a warehouse on the East Coast.  This will put the warehouse and food right in their backyard.

Construction on the warehouse is expected to begin next month and be complete by the end of the year.
