An electrician on a scissor lift is hanging lighting fixtures. Metal studs are still visible in some parts of the walls.  A team of movers is pushing carts of furniture into the food bank's new office.  Eileen Thomas is the Executive Director of the food bank.  She is telling volunteers where to put supplies as they move into the new facility. 
Thomas: "I don't know if anybody has ever had to move into a space that isn't quite ready for them yet so you don't know where everything is and you're a little disoriented, but you make it happen." 
It's only temporary.  But for now, the River City Food Bank will be operating out of a new office on the bottom floor of the Sutter Medical Center, which is directly across the street from the old facility.  Thomas says she doesn't know how long the food bank will be at its temporary location.  But she hopes it can stay through the winter.
