New single-day fundraising record makes 800,000 meals possible!
We’re so grateful for our friends at Ardent Mills, the premier flour-milling and ingredient company headquartered right here in Denver! This amazing organization joined forces with many of its vendors, suppliers and carriers to contribute $200,000 for Food Bank of the Rockies with its fourth annual Colorado charity golf tournament, held at the Riverdale Golf Courses in Brighton, earlier this month.
“We extend our sincere appreciation to vendors, suppliers and carriers who have made this annual event such a huge success. Together, our single-day efforts have shattered the previous fundraising record of $140,000 and made 800,000 meals possible,” says CEO Dan Dye, of Ardent Mills.
Food Bank of the Rockies interim President and CEO Michelle Barnes notes, “Food is the foundation for a happy, healthy life. Because of this event, 800,000 meals will be distributed to families who face hunger in our community. In our Colorado and Wyoming service region, hundreds of thousands of people worry about where they will find their next meal. Hunger is very real, and Food Bank of the Rockies, with the help of partners like Ardent Mills, is fighting to ensure food security is a reality for every family.”
We can only feed our neighbors who face hunger with help from our community. Thank you Ardent Mills for helping us bring hope and needed nutrition to those who can’t afford a meal. We appreciate your kindness!
