In partnership with Weld Food Bank, Anadarko Petroleum Corp. has pledged to donate $150,000 to the organization’s Kitchen Campaign. This donation will help advance the project to its next step in construction.
“This great act of support and leadership has led to the training room being named the “Anadarko Training Center,” said Leona Martens, Weld Food Bank executive director.
In the short term, the Kitchen Project will provide a place to prepare meals for Weld Food Bank’s Kids Cafe program and hot meals in times of disaster. Eventually, nonprofit agencies will have access to prepared meals, training and educational programs will be offered to children, families, and the general community through the Anadarko Training Center. The long term goal will provide employment training for cooks and chefs as well as business skills such as marketing, networking and food safety.
As a partner of the Weld Food Bank, Anadarko has supported the organization in numerous ways by volunteering, participating in the corporate food challenge, sponsoring events and having staff members serve on the board of directors.
“I am very grateful to work for a company that exhibits compassion and support for those who need a helping hand,” said Greg McIntosh, Weld Food Bank board president and Anadarko operations manager. “With Anadarko’s donation, the food bank can further their vision and mission in the fight against hunger in Weld County.”
Weld Food Bank is a member of Feeding America and was founded in 1982. Weld Food Bank’s mission is to lead and engage our community in the fight against hunger.
They distributed 8.1 million pounds of food last fiscal year through 115 nonprofit partner agencies and through four direct service programs which include Kids Cafe, The Backpack Program, Commodity Supplemental Food Program and Emergency Food Boxes.
On average they serve more than 10,000 Weld County residents each month. To learn more, visit www.weldfoodbank.org.
