The Hunger Coalition is purchasing a new property where together, we will build a bold, new solution to hunger. Across the street from our current headquarters is a 13,000 sf building on four acres that will triple the size of our current space; a place where people from all walks of life can engage in a fresh approach to food security. Join us in envisioning the future with these beautiful renderings by Hollis Rumpeltes Architects.
The following parts of the Food Center will help us address a deep problem with a more holistic solution grounded in good food.
• Community Kitchen & Dining Area
• Discounted Membership Grocery Market
• Year-round Greenhouses & Raised Bed Gardens
• Dedicated Partner Space
Bloom Community Food Center will be a place of pride. It will encourage health and human connection. Whether in growing, cooking, or sharing good food, everyone will be an important part of the whole. While we will continue to provide emergency food for people in crisis, there will be a greater variety of access options to answer the diverse needs of our community.
Much of our inspiration for these changes has come from a successful model in Canada. Watch this short video from our mentors to envision where we’re headed.
Join us to usher in this new era of food justice — where a box of canned goods will be replaced with farm-fresh food and election ballots. Your support will be needed more than ever as we look to double the number of people served and more deeply address the root causes of hunger.
Meanwhile, help make sure our current programs can continue to meet the ever-growing demand for food by making a year-end gift. If you give today your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $50,000 by the Heart of Gold – SPUR Community Foundation Challenge Grant!
We endeavor to solve a global problem at the local level and with your help, our community could someday be a national model for a healthier approach to food security. Join us to Feed the Future.
