RFP for Building Upgrade

The Thurston County Food Bank is soliciting bids for three separate equipment purchases. The three proposals we are looking for include:

  • a set of push-back racking
  • a cardboard bailer
  • new condensers for our freezer/cooler units

If you are interested in submitting a proposal for one of these equipment purchases, please send your contact information to director@thurstoncountyfoodbank.org. We will send you specifications via email. We plan to make a decision by October 14, 2022.
