A ribbon cutting took place at the event to introduce the new walk-in freezer that will allow Masbia to go from providing 100 meals each day to over 1,000 meals each day. The new delivery van was also on display. This new mode of transportation will improve efficiency and ultimately cut Masbia’s food delivery costs in half. JCF representatives also served dinner to clients after the event, seeing their contribution being immediately put to work.
