SEATTLE (AP) - A Seattle food bank is being pushed out of its location to make room for an upcoming 30-story apartment complex.

Northwest Harvest received official notice from the land owner on Tuesday informing it that it must leave its Cherry Street Food Bank within a year.

KOMO-TV reports Australian developer Caydon Property Group is planning to develop a 30-story mixed-use residential tower in its space.

The food bank is among the busiest in Washington, serving an average of about 5,000 people a week.

Food bank officials say currently, they have no other place to relocate to.

The land owner, Trinity Parish Church, says it has provided Northwest Harvest, with rent free space for its offices and food bank for more than 35 years.
