Warehouse

NEW WAREHOUSE

We are pleased to announce the opening of our newest location, “Ebenezer East.”  Over the past year, ESM saw an over 60% increase in the demand for its service. With limited space issues at our shared location with El Puente School, who went back “in person” last August, we determined that we needed to expand our footprint and secured a lease for a warehouse in October for a second location on 12th and Bruce.  In January 2022, this additional 13,000 square foot facility was opened and began to serve.  And so began “Ebenezer East!”

Through an expanded partnership and RDO agreement with Feeding America, our capacity to take in and distribute food to the southside and beyond has grown exponentially.  This means ESM is responsible for the redistribution of fresh and dry food to other local pantries. This winter we saw this come to life and our warehouse supplied 12 pantries with food to distribute to surrounding neighborhoods.  In the middle of a food desert, our new fresh food recovery program is filling a deeply felt need in our community.  Through expanded storage, we are able to maintain a steady supply of food, serve fresh food year-round, and support other meal-based programs to do the same thing. 

Our warehouse is also providing students with real work experience as they learn how to operate a forklift as a part of their educational fulfillment.  We see God using this space to equip people with a stable foundation, especially creating opportunities for women and marginalized populations to become trained for the workforce.  This additional space also frees up our original location on 35th and Scott for more programming, allowing us to more easily pursue the financial literacy, job preparedness and ESL components of our work. Our patrons are provided with more than their immediate needs and offered long term stabilizing resources.  We could not have envisioned how God was operating behind the scenes to pull together a plan far beyond our imaginations.  We are blown away by His provision and faithfulness!
