FISH Closer To New Facility

FISH Food Bank’s effort to build a new and expanded facility on Tucker Road just south of Hood River is getting closer to starting construction.  Just over a million dollars has been raised, and now the question is whether the organization’s cost estimates of three years ago will hold up.  Part of the committee working on the project, Dave Radley, says they are waiting on a design for the steel structure building, which will then go to their local engineer to design the concrete foundation.  After that, it’s on to Hood River County for permits.  The new facility will give FISH increased warehouse space with more room for clients to look for items they need, increase the organization’s ability to provide fresh food, and provide a classroom and demonstration kitchen to teach people how to better use the food they have.
