Treasure Coast Food Bank is another step closer to breaking ground on a state-of-the-art 132,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution facility at the Orange 95 Commerce Center in Fort Pierce. The new facility will enable the regional nonprofit to consolidate its multiple properties and grow its operating capacity. 

 Treasure Coast Food Bank — the largest hunger relief organization on the Treasure Coast — has provided 107 million meals since 2020 in St. Lucie, Indian River, Martin and Okeechobee counties. In addition to providing food assistance, the Food Bank offers a pet pantry, diaper pantry, connects clients to other community resources, provides job training, operates a food production kitchen and helps provide disaster relief.

 Recently approved for low-interest, long-term industrial development bond financing, the $30 million investment in the new facility and equipment will enable the organization to add 53 new employees over a three-year period. The building will include cold storage, a full kitchen and serve as a FEMA-approved shelter-in-place location.
