Regional Food Distribution Association (RFDA) Doors Open Thunder Bay

Regional Food Distribution Association (RFDA)

The RFDA distributes food throughout the region, from its home at 570 Syndicate Avenue South. Currently called The Paterson Family Food Centre, the structure – built in 1962 as the A&P Food Stores – later became the Diamond Bingo Hall. In 2011, the building was extensively renovated and repurposed into a food distribution facility – with a kitchen, warehouse and office space.
