Expanding temperature-controlled food distribution infrastructure (e.g. refrigeration, warehouses) and labor availability to handle (e.g. process, package) additional food donation volume
The Food Bank of Northeast Georgia recently secured $4.8 million from businesses and foundations to build a state-of-the-art donation facility with over 6,000 sq. feet of freezer and cooler space.
The Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee provided a Feeding America Produce Capacity Grant to Hughes Farm and Produce to cover the cost of installing a new processing line to sort green beans that were too short, long, or misshapen for retail standards but could be donated. The upgrade cost less than $50,000, and Second Harvest expects to recover 1 million pounds of green beans per year at scale.
