Free Grocery Store is looking for large shipping containers to set up a new food bank distribution model that will allow clients to walk through a structure, and everyone will be better protected from the weather.
In addition, this container structure will allow for more people to access the resources, and for the food bank to be open more days of the week. Current model is drive-thru one day a week, with everyone outside or under a canopy.
