BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont nonprofit organization that provides a free medical clinic and a food pantry service is moving into a new space.

The Bennington Banner (https://bit.ly/2q67iVc ) reports a vacant 3,600-square-foot building will allow all of the programs and office staff at Greater Bennington Interfaith Community Services to share one space for the first time.

Executive Director Sue Andrews says the programs “are very stressed for space” at the First Baptist Church complex where the nonprofit is currently housed.

Town records show the new space was purchased for $220,000, and the nonprofit is proposing $100,707 in renovations.

Clinic medical director Dr. Richard Dundas says the food pantry will be moved to the site first, followed by the free clinic. He says the transfer will begin in either late May or early June.
