A Note of Thanks from Ari Herring, Director of RGFP:
"Huge thanks to Rotary Club of Albuquerque Sandia
for the grant to Rio Grande Food Project to purchase a digital floor scale for our food room! This will decrease heavy lifting among staff and volunteers and will allow for quick reception and inventory of incoming and outgoing food. When you are moving approximately 1 million pounds of food a year, this makes an incredible impact for our Operations Team! #thankyousomuch!
ABQ Rotary Club Donates to Rio Grande Food Project (RGFP):
The Rio Grande Food Project received $19,678 from the Rotary Club of Albuquerque and the Albuquerque Rotary Charitable Foundation, which allowed the food bank to pay for 6,104 household food boxes over the past six months to the more than 700 kids, adults & seniors coming in weekly, according to a news release.
The nonprofit offers outdoor drive-thru distribution events on Wednesday and Fridays (9-11am) and indoor on Sat. (9-11am) at its location at 600 Coors Blvd. NW.
"We are so grateful for this amazing support from the largest Rotary Club in our city, " said Ari Herring, Executive Director of the Rio Grande Food Project in the release. "...(they are) helping realize the RGFP vision that every kid, adult and senior has enough quality food to live the most healthy, happy life possible."
RCA has financially supported more than 30 local nonprofits and organizations as well as 19 projects in five different countries. -- from the Albuquerque Journal
