NBC5 reported that the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is in the final stages of construction on a new facility in Plano, which it plans to move to later this summer. The Plano facility will be called the Perot Family Campus, according to a post on the NTFB blog. The new facility address is 3677 Mapleshade Ln. in Plano.
NTFB CEO Trisha Cunningham told NBC5 that the move will help streamline operations by tripling the size of the current facility, having a more central location to its service area, and being located in a warehouse that is built specifically for food distribution. The NTFB service area includes 13 counties surrounding Dallas.
NTFB is planning to hold a grand opening celebration for the new facility on September 16.
According to Cunningham, the old facility will not close. They are planning for a partner agency to take over the space for distribution in South Dallas.
