The new site, formerly a furniture store and a grocery store before that, will need some interior renovations.

In Greenville, one of the region’s most prominent community organizations is moving into a new and much bigger location, beginning this week. Hunt County Shared Ministries, or FISH, is moving from its old location at 2805 King Street to a former retail outlet at 2825 Oneal Street. The location was once the home of Stash N Little Furniture and had previously been a Brookshire’s. The Greenville Herald Banner reports the move will take Hunt County Shared Ministries from 3,000 square feet in warehouse space to a 25,000-square-foot warehouse. The move will help particularly with the North Texas Food bank distribution events hosted by FISH.

The Herald Banner reports some renovations will be necessary before the ministry can move all operations to the new site. The building needs public restrooms and ADA-compliant entrances. A laundry area and showers are also in the plans.

The ministry dates it origins to 1978, when Grace Presbyterian Church and Redeemer Lutheran Church began coordinating their food pantry services. FISH stands for “Faithfully Involved in Sharing Hope.” More information about Hunt County Shared Ministries is available at www.hcsmfish.org.
