At the North Texas Food Bank ’s brand-new distribution center in Plano, there’s a community garden, a volunteer orientation center and massive stock rooms, with long corridors of towering metal shelves. It’s like wandering through a Costco or a Sam’s Club. When the 230,000-square-foot facility off President George Bush Turnpike and Coit Road opens next month, CEO Trisha Cunningham says the food bank will be even closer to hitting a major milestone: serving 92 million meals a year by 2025. She says moving north gives them a geographical advantage.
