Nourish Campaign Progress

Greater Ambition

The exterior of the Food Depository's renovated building

Renovations completed in October 2019 make our facility more efficient and effective. We increased our capacity to store and distribute fresh fruits and vegetables. We remodeled our volunteer center to improve the overall experience and create more opportunities for youth and families.

Greater Opportunity

Expanded operations will allow us to train and empower more unemployed and underemployed adults with in-demand skills and experience in foodservice, hospitality, and warehouse operations. We will also grow our nutrition education programming. By educating our community about nutrition, we are investing in a healthier future for all.

Greater Together

We know our community has an increasing need for economic development and healthy, accessible food. To respond, we will invest in both workforce training and home-delivered meal preparation. Once fully operational, the meal preparation facility will produce more than 4 million meals a year.
