SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah (AP) -- A new $10 million food bank is opening in November in South Salt Lake.

The Utah Food Bank is holding a dedication ceremony this week for its new home.

Spokeswoman Jessica Pugh says the new 86,000-square-foot facility is almost twice the size of the old site.

The lighting at the new facility is better and the building is more attractive.

In summer 2008 the agency started a $10 million fundraising campaign called "Hunger: A Case for More Space" to buy the new property and building.

Officials say the agency still needs to raise about $1.4 million.
