News Coverage | Food Bank Buys Massive New Warehouse to Increase Services in Marin

March 22, 2018

The San Francisco-Marin Food Bank is pleased to announce plans to move our operations in Marin to a large warehouse property we purchased earlier this year in San Rafael.

The 38,000 square foot building, located at 2550 Kerner Boulevard in San Rafael, contains both warehouse and office space, and is approximately three times larger than the facility we currently lease in Novato.

“This new property is a game changer for our organization – and for our community,” said Food Bank Executive Director Paul Ash.  “For several years, we have been looking for additional warehouse space that would enable us to continue growing our operations and serve even more neighbors in need. This new facility will enable us to do just that – to increase our food distribution, add more services, and engage with more Marin residents who wish to volunteer their time in our warehouse.”

Food distribution to Marin pantries and partners will continue uninterrupted during the move, but volunteer shifts in Marin have been temporarily suspended as the new site undergoes some construction to create optimal work-space.

This news garnered some coverage online, in newspapers, on radio and on television.  Check out some of the local news coverage below.
