When a new building was necessary to keep up with the needs of the community, the food shelf partnered with the City of Hugo. The city applied for Community Development Block Grant funding, which was used to acquire the land on which the new facility would be built.

The new space has more accommodating features for storage and shopping that feels more like a grocery store than it does a food shelf. In its first month open at the new site, the food shelf served 167 households

We’re proud of the residents of Hugo and Centerville and that we could play a part in their success!
