Food Bank Breaks Ground on Expansion

The Food Bank of CNY has been an important partner of VIP since 2009 when our design-build team worked on a 50,000 SF warehouse and office project. The Food Bank is currently expanding once more with a 34,000 SF addition that will allow for more staff and volunteers, provide more food storage, and increase program capacity to accommodate dietary, cultural, and health related nutritional needs.

The Food Bank celebrated the new project with a ground breaking ceremony on July 14th. 

The expansion, designed and built by VIP, will feature new volunteer areas, loading docks, cooler storage, additional office spaces, and an enlarged staff break room and training rooms. Additionally, expanded conference rooms and a new truck entrance will create a safer environment for staff, volunteers, and visitors and allow the Food Bank to serve an additional one million pounds of food.



Drawings show plans for the new expansions as well as elevations of the new two-story office addition.
