Catamount Kicks Off Community Food Bank In Atlanta

ATLANTA, GA (April 2, 2019) — Catamount Constructors, Inc. broke ground this winter on the new Atlanta Community Food Bank, which will consist of a new single-story, 340,000 SF tilt-up box with cold and dry food storage areas and an 85,000 SF office building. The new location will be a single-story food storage facility and office location with 500 parking spaces on 65 acres. The nonprofit will be able to house an industrial amount of food on site and the project is anticipated to be completed by Fall 2019.

The Atlanta Community Food Bank works with more than 600 nonprofit
partners to distribute meals to more than 755,000 people across 29 counties in
metro Atlanta and northern Georgia. Serving primarily low-income Georgians, the
Atlanta Community Food Bank fights hunger in the community by educating and
empowering those in need. This trusted and beloved local organization has been
dedicated to feeding the hungry since 1979.

“We are truly honored and excited to work with the Atlanta
Community Food Bank on this new location,” said John Lichtenwalter, President
of Catamount’s Atlanta Division, “This site will
allow the Food Bank to expand their services and better serve the local
community.”

 “We’re
making great progress,” said Catamount’s project manager, Stephen Kates, “It’s
been extremely rewarding to work with the Food Bank. Catamount’s community
involvement is heavily driven by our employee owners – and we are huge fans of
what the Food Bank has been doing for folks in the Atlanta area.”

Catamount
is working closely with our partner and architect, Randall Paulson Architects,
on this historic project.
