WHAT: Aug. 31, KeHE will celebrate the grand opening of its newest LEED Gold-certified distribution center in Aurora, Colorado with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and tours of the 270,000-square-foot facility. The state-of-the-art site employs energy-efficient practices, including its HVAC system, lighting and 80,000-square-foot freezer and cooler space.
Following the tours, guests will have an opportunity to participate in a “pick & pack” activity to help local families in need. One-thousand boxes of food, including soup packets provided by Women’s Bean Project, will be distributed to Children’s Hunger Fund agencies and Food Bank of the Rockies.
Refreshments and samples from Colorado’s BoulderClean, Chocolove, Epicurean Butter, Goddess Garden Organics, Good Karma, GoodBelly, Noosa, The a2 Milk Company and Shultz’s Gourmet will add to the festivities.
KeHE’s leadership team will be joined by business and community leaders, fellow KeHE employee-owners, Colorado food companies, vendor and broker partners, Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan and other officials.
