A central Kansas food bank's campaign to add space to serve more clients is $50,000 closer to its goal.

An anonymous donor contributed that amount this week to the McPherson County Food Bank's fundraising effort.

Officials are trying to raise $200,000 to add onto the building on Business U.S. 81 in McPherson. The $50,000 gift brings the amount raised so far to $160,000.

The food bank needs more room for storage and for the growing numbers of people who stop by on distribution days. Officials say the number of families served rose by 31 percent from 2010 to 2011, and continues to rise this year.
