A new split system air conditioning unit is on its way to Albury Wodonga Regional FoodShare thanks to an Inland Rail grant.
The not-for-profit organisation was awarded $3960 to put towards facilities for its volunteers at the new Stead Street base in an industrial area off McKoy Street in west Wodonga.
Manager Peter Matthews revealed an air conditioner has been ordered and will be an important addition.
"The staff facilities didn't have an air conditioner, so it gets pretty hot in summer and cold in winter," he said.

"It will make it a lot more comfortable for staff when they're on their breaks.
"We're very grateful for the grant and for Inland Rail choosing us to enable us to improve the facility here."
Member for Farrer Sussan Ley welcomed the funding given the vital role the service plays on the Border.
"During these uncertain times, food security is paramount, and this funding will enable volunteers to continue the essential work to support our community members who are most in need," Ms Ley said.
The body supplies the equivalent of 1.3 million meals per year to the needy.
FoodShare is one of three organisations in the region to benefit from Inland Rail community cash.
