What We've Accomplished

Nourish Phase 1: Our Current Building

Updates completed in 2019 prepare the Food Depository to address the need for years to come. These enhancements included cold storage expansion, dock remodeling, warehouse space repurposing, upgrading the overall volunteer environment and office space reconfiguration.

What's Next

Nourish Phase 2: Preparing Meals, Providing Opportunity

  • We will produce nutritious meals for home delivery to older adults and people with disabilities. Our research shows that living with a disability is one of the most significant risk factors for food insecurity. As populations of older adults and people with disabilities grow, there is rising unmet need in our community for targeted programs serving these groups. Each year, our meal production kitchen will be capable of producing more than 4 million meals.

  • Meal production addresses unemployment as a root cause of hunger by offering job opportunities. We will expand our culinary job training program to offer transitional jobs. These jobs will enable people with barriers to employment to earn money and build essential skills, while offering them career services support.
  • Program enhancements are possible thanks to supporters and partners. The Food Depository will collaborate with existing and new partners to deliver meals where they are needed most. Our new facility will also enable us to offer more training and resources, such as expanded nutrition education programming.
