Working with Capital Area Food Bank since 1993 on its current facility and subsequent additions, Studio8 assisted CAFB with site search and the design of a new facility.
CAFB supports agencies that provide a safety net for hunger relief in 21 Central Texas Counties. They also are focused on the campaign to relieve and end food insecurity for a large population of kids in our schools.
This new facility is designed to be a reflection of the CAFB mission and the importance of the Food Bank in the community. It will house new warehousing, refrigeration and distribution, tripling the amount of food that CAFB can distribute, and have a kitchen that will allow the rescue of food for freezing. Studio8 has been dedicated to the mission of the Food Bank for 20 years, individuals and the company have donated many hours to serve the Food Bank.
