City officials praised the remodeling of the Quad-Cities Food Hub at the Freight House during a ribbon cutting Friday to celebrate the work.

Mayor Frank Klipsch said the city’s riverfront continues to transform and the food hub and Freight House are part of it.

“It has become the energy hub, too,” the mayor said, calling the area a growing destination. “You have seen a lot of changes and more transformation is coming. This is the leading edge of that transformation.”

Remodeling allowed the Food Hub to expand its education center and also shift its produce to an area of the store that receives less sun, keeping it fresher. Work included painting, installing a new floor and new wiring.

A long-time proponent of the Food Hub, Alderman Bill Boom, 3rd Ward, liked what he saw at the ribbon cutting.

“This is a great extension of the Food Hub concept,” he said.
