LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - CareLink is a non-profit that feeds nearly 1,200 people every day. On Thursday, workers broke ground on a new facility to help feed more people in the area.
About 150 supporters joined together to give thanks for a brand new kitchen. Nine senior centers, 800 meals on wheels clients, and a respite center facility will depend on meals from the building in the video.
CareLink CEO Diane Eubanks says this new buidling will help serve the community better.
"What we have now isn't really adequate to serve those who depend on us now. This will give us the capacity to expand services to them and better serve them and be there for the people who need us in the future," Eubanks said.
The renovation will last about 7-8 months and they expect to open in Summer 2013. The commercial-sized kitchen will allow CareLink to go from feeding 1,200 clients to 3,000.
