Thank You To Woodward Academy
As we settle into our new permanent location, we’d like to take one more moment to thank Woodward Academy for graciously hosting Urban Recipe from mid-April to mid-July. Woodward’s provision of space allowed us to safely expand our operations as we worked to respond to the needs of our community in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are so thankful for the Woodward staff and community for welcoming Urban Recipe and providing incredible accommodations to make our work possible.
Here is a snapshot of what having this extra space enabled us to do over a 12 week period:
- 434,740 lbs of food distributed
- $739,058.00 of food donated
- 362,283 meals in homes around the metro area
If you’d like to read more about our time at Woodward Academy, please check out the article written about our operations and partnership HERE.
None of this would have been possible without the added support of our funding partners and all of the amazing volunteers that boxed and delivered frozen meat, fresh produce and shelf-stable pantry items every two weeks to our over 300 Co-op member families and approximately 800 additional households we were able to serve during that time period.
Thank you for your continued support!
