In the News: Dual Expansions

A story released today by the Washington Business Journal states that our friends at the Capital Area Food Bank are going to open a new warehouse double the size of their old one. Those familiar with the Food Bank will be happy to know that they’re still going to be in Northeast, in an area that is no doubt underserved.

In September, Bread for the City is also going to break ground for an expansion of our own that will more than double the size of the Northwest Center, with an emphasis on creating more room for our Medical and Legal Clinics. The recent spike in all commodities (like food) has certainly made the need for expansions like these more pressing, but the long-term support both of these expansions will give the community is greater by far.

Maybe we should have a race!
