BRYAN -- The Brazos Valley Food Bank received a large monetary donation today making them one step closer to their goal of raising $2.5 million dollars for their "Hunger Won't Wait" capital campaign.

The campaign kicked off in January and now thanks to a $100,000 donation from H-E-B they have 35 percent of the funds needed to expand and add on to the food bank.

"The best part is we will more than triple the amount of dry food, like you see in the warehouse on the racks, and we'll have an innovative freezer that will allow us to increase fresh and frozen products by five times," said executive director of the food bank, Theresa Mangapora.

The food bank will break ground in January 2013 and it will take about 8 months to complete the expansion.
