Build Today, Feed Tomorrow

Capital Campaign and Expansion Project

Montgomery County Food Bank continues to experience record-high need for food assistance throughout the county. As a call to action, the food bank is embarking upon a critical expansion project. The Build Today, Feed Tomorrow campaign will support a renovation and expansion of the MCFB facility to provide additional cold storage, volunteer sorting areas, and communal spaces. The expansion project is currently underway with a projected completion date of January 2025.

The Build today, feed tomorrow project will position the food bank to provide increased support to the children, seniors, and families facing hunger in Montgomery County. In 2023, the food bank served an average of more than 80,000 clients contacts per month, which represents a 23% monthly increase from 2022.

A major component of the construction plan is an expanded Produce Rescue Center (PRC), which will double the current space used for sorting and packaging fresh produce. Thanks to its strong community partnerships, Montgomery County Food Bank is able to source substantial amounts of produce, including a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. More than 40% of the nutritious food distributed by MCFB is fresh produce. An enlarged PRC will allow the food bank to accept and rescue more produce, ultimately providing those facing hunger with increased nutritious food sources.

Additionally, the project will feature a new welcome center, workspaces to accommodate larger volunteer groups, and added parking options with increased safety measures. As a result, the food bank will be able to expand its community outreach. Increasing volunteer capacity within the food bank directly aligns with the mission to unite the community to fight hunger. Montgomery County Food Bank will continue to serve its neighbors in need, and we ask you to join us in the fight against hunger by helping us to build today and feed tomorrow.
