Heartland Community Health Center recently added a commercial glass two-door refrigerator to its food pantry, thanks to a LiveWell Community Wellness Grant through the Douglas County Community Foundation. 

The refrigerator increased storage capacity of fresh produce, dairy and eggs by 34 percent. “It’s great because in the past we’ve gotten some bigger donations of produce before — like 60-plus pounds — that we weren’t able to properly store.” Outreach and Enrollment Specialist Brandy Ordiway said. “Some of the food would end up going bad.” 

Heartland provides with families about a week’s worth of groceries for healthy meals every month. Families can receive food once per month. Food is collected on a rotating basis from groups throughout the community, including churches, clubs and service organizations. To see a list of needed items, click here
