OLIVIA, Minn. (KMSP) -

Thanks to donations from across the western portion of the state, the Renville County Food Shelf will be re-open around the corner from their primary location on Wednesday after an arson destroyed their building and supplies last week.

The food pantry will be moving into an office space on round the corner on South 9th Street now that Second Harvest has delivered food and plenty of other equipment, including shelving and a freezer.

A $2,500 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest of the culprits responsible for starting the fire, which was deliberately set in the doorway of the food pantry on Sept. 10.

No arrests have been made so far.

The food pantry was not the only charitable organization affected by the arson. The Redwood/Renville Red Cross and a thrift store also closed and lost inventory used to help those in need.

The Renville County Food Shelf gets no public funding. Instead, all the money and groceries come from community donations. Volunteers run the pantry, which helped nearly 300 families last month.

    New York's attorney general has settled a false advertising investigation at Wal-Mart, saying some store personnel were citing a nonexistent "sugar tax" on soda. Investigators say some consumers who complained were falsely told the state has a "sugar tax." They say the markup of more than 16 percent violated state laws.
