IFC Board of Directors and staff gathered with elected officials last week to recognize and thank the FoodFirst Capital Campaign Cabinet. Led by co-chairs Kevin Foy and Robert Dowling and with counsel from Armstrong McGuire, the 17-member Cabinet worked for two years to secure $5.8 million from more than 440 local families, foundations, congregations and businesses.
The 16,000 square-foot, purpose-built facility will centralize IFC programs in dignified and accessible space. In the interim, the Community Kitchen, Food Pantry, Community Building and Advocacy programs, and administrative offices are located in Chapel Hill’s historic Town Hall at 100 W. Rosemary Street.
IFC looks forward to hosting the community at a Grand Opening ceremony next summer. Thanks to all you who've gotten the FoodFirst project this far!
