2016 Update

News on our Capital Campaign from Executive Director Robert Coit

The Capital Campaign officially closed in the spring of 2015, but much work remains! The Thurston County Food Bank was able to move into our second facility in February of 2015. A few months later deliveries of food for redistribution started to arrive. Our partnerships with Northwest Harvest and Food Lifeline have grown and regular shipments of food, both perishable and non-perishable, arrive weekly.

Phase two of our plan will include the installation of solar panels at the Warehouse Distribution Center, and the addition of a large generator to power the building in the event of a power outage. The Client Services Center will receive a face lift and exterior upgrades. The interior client service area will be reconfigured to provide more space for those using our services.

There are of course a number of smaller unmet needs that require attention. For example, better lighting, a new phone system, additional “point of sale” refrigeration for our distribution area and some unexpected vehicle needs.
