Funding for a refrigerator and freezer for Neighborhood House’s expanded and relocated Francis Basket Food Market, which is moving from Sibley Manor Apartments complex to a much larger space at 1080 Montreal Avenue. Neighborhood House distributed 69,980 pounds of food to 595 participants at the Francis Basket location in Fiscal Year 2023 and expect the participant number to rise dramatically in the larger space for the new fiscal year they’ve just begun. The new refrigerator and freezer will improve their food program’s ability to provide a broad range of fresh and healthy food items to low-income people of color.
