VANCOUVER – Clark County Food Bank has received a $1,000,000 gift from Craig and Linn Dee Stein to help build the Vision Center, a new, additional warehouse and Community Center.

Stein founded his business, Craig Stein Beverage, in 1990 with 11 employees serving the Vancouver/Southwest Washington market. Today, Craig employs more than 1200 employees in five states. As a longtime philanthropist, The Stein’s intend to support hunger relief at a time when Clark County, is experiencing the most challenging issues of hunger due to population growth, economic, and social factors.

“Craig Stein is a visionary, as a businessman and a philanthropist, and we are grateful for his generous support of the food bank’s Vision Center and the community space that will bear his name,” said Alan Hamilton, president of Clark County Food Bank.

“It’s not just a building, it’s the additional capacity needed to serve the dramatic increase in the numbers of people experiencing hunger. The community space will allow the food bank to develop deeper connections with clients to identify the root causes of someone’s hunger, host events, collaborate with other nonprofits and community partners, and that is why we are supporting this project, and we encourage others to support it as well, ” said Craig Stein.

Since 2012, Craig Stein and his dedicated employees have been major supporters of Clark County Food Bank as well as dozens of other nonprofits in our community.
