On September 10, 2019, The Caring Place held a brief rededication for its recently expanded Food Pantry. The expansion, which doubled the Food Pantry’s space, consisted of removing a couple of walls to utilize the space of a storage room and reducing the size of the lobby. Construction was completed in the summer, and final touches were made in time for the rededication event.
The Caring Place’s expanded and redesigned pantry has provided:
- An easily accessible reception and pantry check-in area
- More shelf space, working and walking space
- More space to offer fresh and frozen food selections
- Recipes, food preparation and nutrition information on display
“This expansion couldn’t have come at a better time,” says Food Programs and Facilities Director, David Earl. “In the first 5 days of September, The Caring Place Food Pantry has served 931 people. That is nearly 42,000 pounds of food that has been given to our neighbors in less than a week.”
The Caring Place would like to thank Steve Richmond Fine Homes, Elsasser Architectural, Inc. and Minuteman Press Georgetown for their generosity in making The Caring Place Food Pantry a welcoming space.
