We are investing in a plan to increase organizational capacity and impact on the community to bring our vision of a hunger-free Treasure Coast to life.

Treasure Coast Food Bank (TCFB), the Treasure Coast’s largest hunger relief organization, broke ground on its new 132,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution facility in February 2024.

OUTCOMES

NEED

  •  1 in 4 neighbors in the Treasure Coast does not have enough food to be healthy and thrive. 

  •  Due to costs of living increases and seasonal impacts of the area, TCFB is seeing an elevated need for services that is 34% higher than pre-pandemic levels.

  • Treasure Coast is a dynamic and growing community, having seen 60,000 new residents arrive in the last 18 months alone.

  • Estimates predict that the population on the Treasure Coast will increase by 20% before 2030. TCFB will need to keep up with the growing demands for food assistance and disaster relief services.

  • TCFB currently operates from five locations, including separate warehouse and volunteer center locations, which limits efficiency and long-term sustainability given the current level of need for community assistance.

  • Current warehouse space constraints challenge TCFB’s ability to maximize and leverage food sourcing opportunities and long-term distribution of nutritious food and essential items to its programs and partners.

SOLUTION

  • TCFB has acquired 15 acres of property near I-95 in Fort Pierce, Florida (400 Loop Road) and officially celebrated their groundbreaking on February 16, 2024.

  • The new location will bring operations that are currently spread across 3 locations into a 132,000 square-foot facility, which includes:

  • Expanded Cold and Dry Storage

  • Ceiling heights to accommodate four-pallet high racking

  • 14 loading docks with ambient and refrigerated staging areas

  • New Nutrition and Wellness & Outreach Center

  • New Community Meeting Space

  • Expanded Office Space

  • Temperature-Controlled Volunteer Center

  • Expanded Job Training Center

  • Additional square feet available for future expansion opportunities.

OUTCOMES

Feed: Increased Capacity

  • The new facility will serve as the main hub for all the Food Bank’s operations.

  • The new facility will allow TCFB to increase food distribution services by 76%

 Unite: Investing in Partners 

  • TCFB is committed to leveraging the capabilities of valued partners

  • TCFB will build a larger network of traditional and nontraditional partners

  • Empower partners to voice and address complex community needs and to expand services to meet those needs

Flourish: Social Equity and Addressing Root Causes

  • TCFB will be better positioned to continue its focus beyond food

  • Expansion of education programming

  • More health and wellness projects

  • Expanded job training programs

  • Tailored benefits outreach and case management services
