CORNING, N.Y. -- A Steuben County food pantry is making a big move to help out its clients.

Corning Community Food Pantry relocated to better serve the 26,000 people across the county that rely on it.

Officials cut the ribbon Tuesday morning at the new building on East Corning Road. They say it's a more centralized location, making it easier for community members to get to.

During an average trip, clients can pick up enough food to last them about a week, from fruits and vegetables to dairy and meat. Volunteers say what's most rewarding is being able to better provide for those who need it most.

"When you see a child come in who is hungry and puts on a big smile because there is a box of Wheaties sitting there for him, you can't walk away numb to that,” said the pantry’s executive director, Beth Wasson. “It's a two-way street. We give and we get."

Doors open to the public Wednesday morning.
