River City Food Bank - finally! - prepares to move in to its new space, replacing the building that burned in October 2010.

Our Executive Director, Eileen Thomas, sat down with Comcast for an interview about RCFB and our work. Check it out after the jump!

The Hunger Coalition introduced CARES and River City Food Bank to each other, but fun - and love of food - keeps them together.

On November 11, the Sacramento Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce's Metro Inspire team spent the day helping us prepare our new building for opening.

How the Sacramento Metro Chamber is proving, "A little is enough if enough people do it!"

KCRA's Dierdre Fitzpatrick delivered a story on the continuing efforts to rebuild RFCB: "River City Food Bank is still operating out of a temporary building one year after an arsonist burned down their facilities."

On October 19, Fox40's Howard Coyle reported on the progress made in RCFB's recovery from the fire.

The new building is located 1725 28th Street at the corner of R and 28th.Streets and with 3,200 square feet of space, it is more than double the original location that was lost in the fire. Besides more space to better serve the community, the new site is less than a half mile from the old location and conveniently located near the light rail and Department of Human Assistance. RCFB hopes to open the new building before the holidays. The new space is slowly coming around, but help is still needed.

Looking back at the events of River City Food Bank over the past year, we've come so far, but we also have further to go. Watch the video after the jump!
