COVINGTON – Northshore Food Bank held a ground breaking ceremony on Thursday, June 20, for its new food bank building, a $2.5 million community investment.

Located in downtown Covington, around the corner from the current food bank location, the new facility and renovations of the existing campus will allow the food bank to fight hunger on the Northshore by capitalizing on every opportunity to acquire and provide food.

“This is an exciting day for our organization and Washington and St. Tammany Parishes as well,” said Terri Turner-Marse, CEO, Northshore Food Bank. “The face of hunger has changed in our community. It’s not simply the critically impoverished any more. So access for all our clients is essential to our organization. The nearly 8,000 families the food bank touches each year will be more efficiently served in the new, well-equipped food bank.”

“In the coming months, the food bank will have increased capacity and operational efficiency making it an even more invaluable resource to hungry families in our community,” says Jimmy Rogers, Chairman of the Board of Northshore Food Bank.
