Food Bank moving to new location next year

Written by  Monday, 23 December 2013 09:47

  The Food Bank will be joined by two other organizations dedicated to providing food for those in the county who need it. 


  Currently the Food Bank uses a portion of the former Sallie Zetterower Elementary School on Gentilly Road but the lease expires at the end of this year.  The building and eight acres are for sale so the Bulloch County Board of Education decided to relocate it at the former Julia P. Bryant Elementary School.  The lease will be for the same $1 annual rent. 


  The new location will provide for space and services available to the public.  With that in mind Rebecca’s Café, and the Food Bank’s Morning Outreach will move to the same location.  Rebecca’s Café is a free Tuesday lunch program sponsored by the Statesboro-Bulloch County Recreation Department which currently utilizes the community center at Luetta Moore Park. 


  They will have access to the kitchen and several rooms in both the “A” and “C” wings which can be used as office space and food serving areas.  Georgia Southern University will continue to use the lunchroom for public nutrition classes.


  Last year 2,267 families received food from the Statesboro Food Bank.  In its first year in 1988 217 families were served.  The peak year for Statesboro Food Bank was 2011 in which 2,891 families received food.
