Work is progressing on a Preston Community Food Pantry being built as an addition at the rear of the city’s archery building on West Oneida.
Steve Aust, who is one of a group of people spearheading the project, told the council on Monday that $32,000 has been raised so far and several volunteers have been helping with construction.
The addition will extend the building by 44 feet to the north. Aust, Fred Knowlton and others approached the council several months ago for authorization to construct the pantry as the addition.
An original building plan was delayed until last October to allow time for funding to be acquired. The group came to the city again this summer and said sufficient monies had been accumulated and a building permit was issued.
Knowlton explained the archery building location is ideal for the pantry because of the availability of adequate parking.
