Philabundance was founded in 1984: today, it is the region’s largest hunger relief nonprofit, distributing more than 25 million pounds of fresh produce, meat, dairy, and pantry staples to those in need each year. Over the past 10 months we have built a new facility dedicated to meal production, culinary arts training, and community engagement. Integral to growth we have built three different kitchens that surround a centralized community space. The production kitchen will prepare four million meals for the community annually. The training kitchen will enable students in PCK’s 14-week culinary vocational training and life skills program gain skills to work in the fast growing food service industry. The demonstration kitchen is designed with residential equipment to allow for educational demonstrations to engage the surrounding communities. The pre-engineered building is 18,800 square feet with a unique main entrance façade that will provide an abundance of natural light. The building is composed of sustainable cladding materials. The interior spaces include the aforementioned kitchens, food storage areas, offices, classrooms, and ancillary spaces for training graduations, banquets, conferences, open houses, catered events and more.
