Longtime food bank in Thousand Oaks building larger facility

Longtime food bank in Thousand Oaks building larger facility


After operating out of a small house for 50 years, Manna Conejo Valley Food Bank is building a new, much larger facility at a former church in Thousand Oaks.

The $2.2 million renovation of the former Shepherd’s House/Foursquare church at 95 N. Oakview Drive began last month and is expected to be completed early next year.

Manna bought the church in 2016 for $840,000, said Darin Arrasmith, the nonprofit’s board president.

Arrasmith said it was long overdue for Manna to move.

“We’re busting at the seams at our current location and have been for a long time,” he said. “But building a food bank is no easy task. It’s a very specific type of real estate.”
