Bootheel Food Bank to Make Move to Cape

SIKESTON, MO - The Bootheel Food Bank will soon be making a move from Sikeston to Cape Girardeau.  The bank's new home will be a 25,700-square foot building near the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport.

The move will be completed later this month, and is expected to increase visability for the food bank, which distributes federal surplus commodities and donated foods to 150 agencies in 16 southeast Missouri counties.

The new facility includes 20,060 feet of warehouse space, as well as 5.650 feet of office space, and will allow the agency to better consolidate distribution and administration.
