Cold Storage & Drive-In Freezer
Distributing fresh produce, milk, cheese and other refrigerated items to hungry people is absolutely essential to improving nutrition in our community. The cold storage unit provides enough space for a forklift to easily move pallets in and out. With this cooler space, Georgia Mountain Food Bank has the capacity to accept truck loads of donated product. This area allows GMFB the capacity to hold 160 pallets of refrigerated food!
GMFB’s drive-in freezer allows us to provide more nutritional options for our partner agencies and the people in need that they serve. It is vital to have freezer space to store poultry and other meats, frozen fruits and vegetables and dairy products. The drive-in freezer allows plenty of room for a forklift to move food in and out and allows GMFB the capacity to hold 160 frozen pallets of food. We can even adjust the temperature of the cold storage unit in order to transition it into a larger freezer if surplus food arrives at GMFB that needs to be frozen. By storing product at -2 degrees, GMFB is able to use the freezer to preserve even more foods supplied by retail stores and donors.
