SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) - A Springfield food bank is finding it difficult to keep donated goods from going to waste.
The Second Harvest Food Bank says it needs a new food cooling unit that costs more than $100,000.
"I have a great big warehouse that can hold a whole lot of shelf stable goods, but when you run into refrigeration space and freezer space, that's when problems arise," said Jeff Miller, Operation Supervisor.
Miller said to make matters worse, the current refrigeration unit has its share of problems.
"Even the cooler and refrigeration unit we built just four years ago is already busting at the seam and right now, I'm going to have to pay off site cold storage," Miller said.
Miller said the food bank distributed more than 2.5 million meals in 2011 and more than 2.8 million meals in 2012. He expects those numbers to continue climbing.
Miller said he's planning to start a campaign to raise money for the unit, but the food bank will have to make do until then.
Police will be meeting with prosecutors in the "near future" to determine what charges a person of interest will face in connection with Tuesday's shooting in West Carrollton, officials there announced.
