It's a historic day for Snack Pak for Kids Canyon.  For the first time ever, the program has a place of its own to call home.

Executive Director of Canyon Hope Ministries Cindy Sheets says, "It's just over the top, it's just amazing.  This has been a long process coming and we've just been so excited to hear about their news that they wanted to offer us this building."
 
Previously, the program used space at Coffman Industries.  Snack Pak's new home is donated by Brad Tooley and Doug Cowan of Choice Media.

Brad Tooley of Choice Media says their employees wanted to help because they had an overwhelming support for Snack Pak.

The building will be used for much more than just storage.

Sheets said that volunteers will use the building to pack food on the third Mondays and Tuesdays of every month.

She said they'll also be able to load for distribution to all schools in the Canyon school district.

The additional space will allow the program to expand the number of children reached.

Sheets said they currently have 700 children on the Snack Pak program and the new building will allow them to at least add another 300.

Tooley says the new facility was originally being built to be a chapel. 

He says because its intended purpose was for ministry, he plans on using it for just that.
