You are the seed from which our vision and capacity to end hunger continues to grow, and the very heart of what we do to serve the front lines of hunger. Today, your help is more critical than ever to ensure all of our neighbors have the nutritious food and resources they need.
The new food distribution facility includes loading docks and an open-concept layout for dry food storage. Paired with the installation of a state-of-the-art freezer/cooler system, the Food Bank operations can increase in efficiency by as much as 60% in the new facility.
The new volunteer room will have space for more than 100 volunteers per shift. With ample room for volunteer activities and community engagement, the Food Bank will be able to sort, pack, and deliver even more food assistance to children, adults, and seniors in need.
The community kitchen will be home to the Food Bank’s culinary job training program—a program designed to provide long-term solutions to food insecurity, and help folks find and retain employment for financial stability.
We must raise an additional $1.4 million dollars to complete the Fighting Hunger, Building Hope Capital Campaign. This is critical $4 million effort to increase our capacity to acquire, store, and distribute millions more nutritious meals each year. In this new facility, we can also provide innovative programs to foster long-term solutions to hunger and poverty in Northwest Indiana.
