Now in its 40th year of service, GCFB is the largest distributor of emergency food in Northeast Ohio, providing the resources for more than 50 million meals in its last fiscal year. CNMIF II closed on $10M of federal NMTC allocation on February 15, 2022 to GCFB, along with NMTC allocation from Truist, Development Fund of the Western Reserve and The Community Builders. The total $26M of Federal NMTC allocation is financing the construction of a 197,000 sq. ft. warehouse and distribution facility totaling $46.7M in project costs to house the fresh, dry and frozen food in Collinwood neighborhood in Cleveland, Ohio.

Phase 1 enabled GCFB to serve an additional 100,000 clients per year and increase daily healthy meals from 4,000 to 8,000 capacity. The NMTC Investor is PNC.
