  • Meal gap = 7.8 million meals annually

What’s New

The Ray Smith Family Distribution Center in Camden opened in fall 2018, but there’s still work to be done before it reaches its full potential. Currently the 25,800-square-foot facility includes safe food storage for frozen, refrigerated, and shelf-stable food.

When it’s running at capacity, this new location will distribute more than 4.3 million meals in our 14 Western counties annually.
