Second Harvest enriching lives of tomorrow's leaders

THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) -

The new Second Harvest food bank facility in Thomasville isn't open yet but lucky "Kids Cafe'" participants got a sneak peak on Monday.

Children got to look at the kitchen where their afternoon meals will be prepared.

When it's fully-staffed the kitchen will be capable of producing ten thousand meals a day.

The facility will hold up to five million pounds of food, a great start towards getting kids on their way towards a bright future.

"We had some of the children out here to see the progress, to see the kitchen that will make their meals from here on out, to put their hands in concrete, which we will then use to seal a time capsule, and in the capsule they did drawings of what they want to be when they grow up," said chief marketing officer Eliza McCall.

They plan to take those drawings out in about 20 years. The "Kids Cafe'" program will expand once the new facility opens in May.
