HELENA — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints donated $1.3 million to the Helena Food Share.

According to Helena Food Share, the money will help with the construction of the new commercial kitchen, dry food and cold food storage at Food Share's new warehouse.

Helena Food Share's new location is being built on Boulder Ave., just off N. Montana. The 20,000-square-foot facility will more than double the amount of available warehouse space and quadruple the amount of cold storage.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints says this is the largest single humanitarian donation by the church to an organization in Montana.

The donation comes around one year after the church dedicated its Helena temple. The Helena LDS temple is the church's second temple in Montana.
