Clean Room

From full pallets to family size.

Knowing that we could stretch the valued dollars we receive from donors by repackaging bulk food donations on-site, we partnered with the Kellogg Company to build our Clean Room in 2020! Throughout the past few years, we've repackaged everything from Cocoa Puffs to peanut butter to cocoa powder and spices. Because the room is temperature controlled, we are also able to handle frozen vegetables, like squash, broccoli, carrots, cabbage, and zucchini!

Interested in bringing your group out to volunteer in our Clean Room? Contact our volunteer department!


We distribute the product we package in the Clean Room through our Fresh Food Distributions and pantries — even at our own Fort Food Pantry here at the Food Bank. We have also packaged spice kits for the Fresh Food Pharmacy program in this room!
