The Feed Our Vets food pantry in Utica is still looking for a new home, but no longer in the city’s Bagg’s Square district.

Founder Rich Synek has written a letter to the Boilermaker’s executive director officially discontinuing their interest in the building: ”we would like to thank you for the opportunity to place a purchase offer in on the Running Hall of Fame Building.  It is beautiful, well maintained and a perfect place to operate the only food pantry in the entire U.S. dedicated to feeding America’s hungry veterans, their spouses and children.”

The letter continued, ”The contract has been pulled and is now null and voided.  FOV does not want the men and women and the 200 children we feed to be exposed to people who have no respect for them and are not welcomed in the West Baggs [sic] Square area.  All of us at Feed Our Vets appologizes [sic] for any inconvenience this may have caused.”

Synek joined WIBX First News with Keeler in the Morning, the day after sending the letter:
