The Ballard Food Bank recently announced their plans to change locations, and it appears that it will be an easy move: in 2021, they’ll move just down the street to the corner of 14th and Leary.
The nonprofit will construct a new building at the site, which will house its grocery-style food bank and large Community Research Hub.
“We are excited to have found our permanent home,” Ballard Food Bank Executive Director Jen Muzia said in a statement about the move. “The new building will be a vital community resource where our neighbors can get the food, hope, and dignity that they deserve. Creating a welcoming, innovative space for the people we serve is our number one priority.”
The lease on their current location, 5130 Leary Ave NW, will end in October 2021 — but the food bank expects to move into their new building earlier in the year.
“We are thrilled to stay in the neighborhood, and we look forward to sharing more information about our new home soon,” Muzia said.
