The Inter-Faith Council for Social Services is preparing to build a new facility in Carrboro.
Construction will begin this spring on a new, three-story food pantry, community kitchen and services center in downtown, reports the News & Observer.
The IFC will close its building at 110 W. Main St. on March 25 and move out, according to IFC director Jackie Jenks.
The $5.6 million FoodFirst project is expected to take about a year to complete. The IFC intends to inaugurate the new building in the summer of 2020.
“Combining the kitchen and pantry into one program and location will maximize food, space, staff and volunteer resources to provide a more effective way to collect available food resources and get it into the hands of those who are hungry in our community,” according to the IFC’s website.
The three-level building with parking on the ground floor is designed by Jim Spencer Architects.
