Our New Client Space. Can you Help? http://centrewellingtonfoodbank.org/our-new-client-space-can-you-help http://centrewellingtonfoodbank.org/our-new-client-space-can-you-help#comments Fri, 17 Apr 2015 18:44:36 +0000 http://centrewellingtonfoodbank.org/?p=2062 Food Bank Logo_HorizontalOur new client space is such an exciting project for us and those we serve. Since realizing our capital development strategy with the purchase of the adjacent unit, we researched and evaluated various directions before deciding on a flexible plan that will serve our needs now and in the future.

We are fortunate to have the pro bono talents of Figure3 for interior design and James Fryett Architect. With their expertise and the assistance of this wonderful community, we feel confident we have a great team to shape our new client space.

To implement the designers’ exciting concept for the space, we are hoping for specific donations and sponsorships of equipment, materials and services so that all other fundraising can provide food for your neighbours struggling to feed their families. Can you help with anything on our wish list?
