Loaves and Fishes of Archuleta County received a $4,000 Impact Grant from the Community Foundation serving Southwest Colorado to purchase a new upright freezer. The Community Foundation worked with partner Bank of the San Juans to match the grant to help Loaves and Fishes purchase a second freezer.
“This grant gives us a huge boost in eliminating our existing chest freezers that are aging and make it difficult to rotate meat,” said Gwen Bartley, vice president of the board of directors of Loaves and Fishes. “The new upright freezers will improve our process of storing meat, increase efficiency and decrease electricity costs.”
