The Food Bank of Delaware cut the ribbon on its new 80,000-square-foot facility south of Newark on Friday morning.
The ceremony officially culminated an almost three-year project to relocate the crowded 14 Garfield Way facility to 222 Lake Drive in the Pencader complex.
The move from the Garfield Way site a few miles away from Lake Drive has been taking place since April.
The news site allows the Food Bank to expand its warehouse and job training services.
“It’s a proud day for your Food Bank of Delaware,” said Food Bank of Delaware President and CEO Patricia Beebe. “This building represents what the Food Bank of Delaware does best – partnering with community members to create strategic alliances to do what is in the best interest of the people we serve.”
More than 300 guests were on hand to witness the official ribbon cutting including community dignitaries.
