Food Bank Invites Public to Reopening

From Times Staff Reports

Adopt-A-Neighbor food bank, which closed briefly in January, will celebrate its reopening with a public reception Monday at its new location.

The charity, which helps about 10,000 people a month with food and other goods, lost its previous site, a Mission Viejo storage facility, after failing to reach an agreement on rent.

Jim Miller, president of Shelter for the Homeless in Midway City, offered to pay Adopt-A-Neighbor's $3,100-per-month rent for a year at the new location, 24601 Raymond Way in Lake Forest.

The new center has been operating for five months, but volunteers just completed renovations. On Monday, tours of the 1,700-square-foot facility will be available from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Adopt-A-Neighbor was founded in 1988 by Kathryn McCullough, who is now mayor of Lake Forest. She will be on hand for Monday's celebration.
