Minn. health care system to build new foodservices building

St. Cloud VA Health Care System is building the new facility to better serve on-campus veterans.

ST. CLOUD, Minn.—The St. Cloud VA Health Care System plans to build a new and bigger food services building to better serve veterans living on campus or with mental health issues.

Ground was broken Wednesday for the 18,000-square-foot building. The VA will repurpose its 1924-era kitchen and dining areas as a primary care clinic.

"The fundamental driving force is the need for additional primary care space," said Barry Venable, public affairs officer at the St. Cloud VA Health Care System. "This is prime real estate in the center of campus."
