Thank you for a successful event! The food will be distributed in november 2014 to support a healthy thanksgiving holiday season.
Check out the SUPER foods that were graciously donated...YUM!
It's time for the first ROC City Values Super Food Drive!! On Saturday, September 13th, we kicked off a Super Food Drive at the East End Fitness Festival to generate nutritious non-perishable foods to donate alongside the produce from our "Farm Fresh, City Fresh" project. This project will run through the end of September. The food items will then be paired with the fresh produce donations from Headwater Foods to provide balanced meals to kiddos in the Rochester City School District.
The families that we currently sponsor are within: School #7, #9, #16, #25, #46 & #54.
Here is how YOU can get involved:
- Make a monetary donation between 9/13-9/30 to ROC City Values. Every penny will be used to purchase "Super Foods" at Hart's Local Grocers at the end of the month.
- Visit the all new Hart's Local Grocers at 10 Winthrop Avenue in Downtown Rochester!! You can purchase Super Foods from the one-of-a-kind local store and leave them right in our ROC City Values | Headwater Foods Collaborative "Farm Fresh, City Fresh" Project Collection Bin. The collection kicks off on September 13th and runs through the 30th of September.
- Drop off your "Super Food" donations on your way to your workout at the Downtown Fitness Club at 50 Chestnut Street. Collections will be through the 30th of September!
All donations, cash or goods, will be used as food donations alongside the fresh produce for Rochester kiddos and families that we are sponsoring through the Farm Fresh, City Fresh Project. We are making their meals whole with all healthy, fresh and local foods. Together, let's share, teach and get our children of Rochester excited about Super Foods!
