, a Redmond-based social services nonprofit, has moved its Redmond food bank and emergency services center from the Together Center on Northeast 87th Street to a new facility at 16725 Cleveland Street.
The new center is open for business this week and will hold its first food bank session from 5:30 to 7 p.m. this Wednesday, Oct. 5.
Hopelink says the new facility is larger and will enable the organization to offer expanded services, including adult education classes and family development programs.
Redmond Food Bank Coordinator Lori Haynes said in a news release that the facility will make it easier to manage inventory so that clients will have access to the freshest food possible, as well as offer more of a one-stop option for those who need more than one service.
“With emergency services, family development and employment programs in one location, clients will have easier access to other services instead of being directed to another center for help," Haynes said. “We’re very excited about our new space and the opportunity to better serve our current and future clients.”
The Redmond food bank serves more than 1,000 people every month and is one of five Hopelink emergency service centers in north and east King County.
