State College Area Food Bank

Our new site functions well in many ways. Parking is simpler for our clients, for example. However, we have less work and storage space at our new facility. With our change of space we are also pursuing some procedural changes. Although we have less space, we have more control over the space including the possibility of more weekend activities. Ultimately we will strive to implement those procedures that will best serve our clients.

Fall is typically our busiest time of the year, so coordinating a move at the same time provided many challenges. However, with the help of many volunteers, we were able to open in our new facility on January 22, 2007.

After you have lived in one place for 24 years there is much accumulated stuff to deal with. Besides the usual details of moving, like address change and utilities connections; the Food Bank also had signage issues, parking and trash collection questions, insurance details, and so on. Then there is the move itself. And more details. We acquired some used metal shelving, but discovered that the upright supports were three inches taller than our ceilings. Volunteer and Board Member Roger Wurst spent an afternoon whittling them down. Thanks Roger!

Thanks to St. Andrew's Episcopal Church for providing us with a location for the past 24 years. The use of their facilities has allowed the Food Bank to grow to meet the needs of the community.
