Second Harvest Food Bank held a groundbreaking ceremony on the site of its future headquarters facility at Whitaker Park in Winston-Salem.
The new, 139,192 square foot Second Harvest headquarters facility and accompanying technology will address space challenges and operational inefficiencies currently facing the Food Bank, which in 2009 was distributing 9 million pounds of food and this last 12 months distributed 50 million pounds of food, including 7.5 million pounds of fresh produce, to address urgent needs of families facing food insecurity.
The Whitaker Park location in the heart of Winston-Salem will offer an inviting, easy-to-access location for Second Harvest’s 6,200-member strong volunteer community and open the doors for hundreds of new volunteers who are ready to be a part of our mission. The location also offers critical highway access for Second Harvest’s distribution network and partner agencies.
