During February, the RCFC Community Grants Committee awarded the Food Bank for Larimer County (FBLC) a $7500 grant.  FBLC  provides food to all in need through community partnerships and hunger-relief programs.  When COVID closed the schools, FBLC created an emergency feeding plan to serve schools, housing authority complexes and mobile home parks with free and reduced meals. 
Rotarians Dan Mackey and Kathy Nicol present the check to Amy Pezzani, Chief Executive Officer.
FBLC is providing grab and go meals in a drive-up manner to limit exposure. They also have a tray sealer used to package and distribute individual meals to seniors, and they realized they could use the same equipment to package meals for children and families.  With our grant of $7,750, FBLC will purchase additional packaging frames, enabling FBLC to prepackage cereals, veggies, fruit, and soup to distribute through their Kids CafĂ© program, servings more than 2,000 children. 
This grant was funded by our Legacy Fund.  The Legacy Fund, our endowment fund, was created to develop and provide a permanent source of supplemental funding for humanitarian and charitable programs supported by the Rotary Club of Fort Collins.
