Enter the former Bangor Daily News printing facility, which was on the market and is now home to the Food Bank with three state-of-the-art temperature- and humidity-controlled cold storage units, vast freezer space, ample dry storage space for shelf-stable products, and areas for packing and distributing food.
The Food for All capital campaign to fund the building purchase and renovation took just over three years. More than 900 donors were inspired as Kristen shared her vision for the future and came together to fund the building renovation, including gifts as small as $1 up to one million dollars. The new Hampden-based distribution center was dedicated as the Hannaford Center to honor the retailer’s transformational role in donating both food and funds since the Food Bank’s founding.
As community members toured the new distribution center at a grand opening event in September 2019, Kristen remarked how the facility was for our future as she motioned toward shelves and racks that were still empty.
