Community Connections’ Food Bank will be closed Monday Oct. 5 and reopening Oct. 7 at their new location at 416 2nd St. West.
Since the lockdown in March, the food bank and food recovery program combined have been operating in the back parking lot of Community Connections’ main office at 314 2nd St. East.
In May, demand at the food bank had tripled.
The organization purchased the new property in August in order to offer more support to the community in a safe, more dignified and responsive manner.
Outreach teams, youth programs and food programs will operate out of the new space.
Food distribution will resume at the new location on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11 a.m.-12 p.m.
