Greater Lansing Food Bank (GLFB) shared plans to build a $7.5 million facility in Bath through their Building Hope campaign. This campaign aims to increase the food bank’s reach in Mid-Michigan and provide those in need with three nutritious meals a day.
The 60,000 SF facility includes more space to expand storage capacity in cooler and freezer rooms by 250 percent and 110 percent, respectively. Additionally, dry storage will increase by 80 percent. With predictions that GLFB will need to double its annual meal count by 2025, we look forward to seeing this industrial property’s features in action to meet growing needs.
Michelle Lantz, CEO of GLFB, shared more about the intent behind the organization’s expansion. “To keep up with the demand of those struggling with hunger, we need to increase our capacity, improve technology for quicker distribution and innovate our systems. This new facility is key in the vision to improve our community’s health and well-being.”
Lantz stated that this is GLFB’s largest project. This is partially due to donations from local companies including two of our clients, Jackson National Life and Auto-Owners Insurance.
