North Kitsap Fishline will be holding a grand opening event for its new Food Bank & Comprehensive Services Center in Poulsbo on Saturday, Nov. 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Visitors are welcome to stop by the new Viking Avenue location for tours of the facilities.

The first floor of the new facility is 7,500 square feet, with the building itself taking up a whopping 15,000 square feet divided between its two floors. That’s three times the size of Fishline’s previous location.

“That allows us to be able to expand our warehouse, our food processing center, our rescue facility and the cold storage that we really need to be able to hold onto food and make it last,” said Mary Nader, Fishline’s executive director, during a September interview.

As for the comprehensive services portion of the new location, those who visit the center will have the opportunity to make contact with providers and support from:

— Kitsap Community Resources

— Housing Solutions Center

— YWCA Domestic Violence Support

— American Legion

— Kitsap Sexual Assault Center

— Kitsap Crime Victim Assistance Center

— Dispute Resolution Center

— Washington State Department of Social and Human Services

— Sound Works Job Center

— Kitsap Mental Health Center

A dental office will also be on site, staffed by providers through Peninsula Community Health Services.
