NCMC Inc. donates $50,000 to Weld Food Bank’s Commercial Kitchen

GREELEY – NCMC Inc., owner of North Colorado Medical Center, announced a
$50,000 donation to Weld County Food Bank’s Commercial Kitchen project.

The $1.15 million project will double the number of hot meals served to
children through the Kids Cafe program and increase the services it
provides to the food bank’s 106 partner agencies. The Commercial Kitchen
will also provide Disaster Food Production capabilities to the local
community and give the food bank the opportunity to partner in providing
culinary arts training, nutrition courses and food safety classes.

NCMC’s gift means the food bank has only $96,500 to raise to meet its
fundraising goal.

“Weld Food Bank is thankful for the generous donation and appreciates
NCMC Inc.’s support of our Commercial Kitchen,´ said Leona Martens, food
bank executive director. “NCMC Inc. plays an active role in our
community, supporting organizations such as Sunrise Health Clinic and
the Guadalupe Shelter, and we are happy they have continued their
commitment to helping the vulnerable in our community by investing in
our kitchen project.”

A Kitchen Shower in honor of the Commercial Kitchen will be held Sept.
25 from 2 to 4 p.m. when guests can purchase the commercial supplies
needed for the kitchen and help raise the remaining funds needed to make
the project operational.
