Construction for the expansion and improvements to the Beans & Bread Center is in full swing. After several months of delays due to soft soils caused by an underground stream, the excavation is complete and work on the building’s foundation has begun. The building will begin to take shape in early Summer, and the project is expected to be completed by early 2013.
The project will more than double the facility space and add critical services for people experiencing hunger, homelessness and poverty. It will add new showers and laundry services, create a new employment resource area, bring the meal service line indoors, improve access for people with disabilities, provide adequate and appropriate office space for staff and partner agencies to better engage clients, and accommodate the growing Home Connections permanent housing program.
