UPDATE: Due to a significant electrical fire in our basement on January 30, 2023, the Millvale Food + Energy Hub is temporarily closed. We are grateful for the quick response of tenants and first responders who kept the fire from reaching the first floor and ensured the safety of everyone onsite. That being said, smoke damage is extensive throughout the building and we have begun the restoration and renovation process. NSR and our partners are committed to work together and bring this important community space back as quickly and safely as possible.
New Sun Rising and Moose MODE, Inc. transformed a 10,000 square foot former Moose Lodge into the Millvale Food + Energy Hub. This solar powered facility serves as a cafe, food rescue, co-working, public and private event, job training, and gathering space. As a project which prioritizes reuse throughout renovation and operations, the Millvale Food + Energy Hub helps to advance goals of the community-led Millvale Ecodistrict and Triboro Ecodistrict.
The Hub has two rental rooms available in the upstairs Cafe or lower level Purple Onion for your next nonprofit or business event, small conference, family or friends gathering, baby shower, wedding, or wake. We especially love working with musicians and creatives. Get in touch via the rental inquiry form below and let’s work together!
The vision of this project is to create an inspiring, informative, and welcoming place where the community can explore ways to create a more sustainable, vibrant, and resilient future for all people and the planet.
