Rotary donates to ABQ food bank

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 more than 700 kids, adults and seniors weekly, according to a news release.

The nonprofit offers outdoor drive-thru distribution events on Wednesday and Fridays and indoor on Saturdays at their location at 600 Coors 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 their 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.
