Recently, the Renewed Hope Food Pantry, a Harvesters Community Food Network agency and an Adventist Community Services center located in Overland Park, Kansas reached out to Rosemann’s Vice President Dave Hendrikse to provide necessary drawings to the city to allow the installation of an outdoor cooler building on a pro bono basis. The outdoor coolers would help Renewed Hope provide diverse foods with high nutritional value to food pantry visitors regardless of age, culture, and health needs throughout the greater Kansas City area.
Following the favorable approval of Roseman’s drawings, Renewed Hope’s new outdoor cooler building has been successful in helping to increase the ability to provide perishable food and hope to the community they serve. Fresh fruit, eggs, vegetables and other healthy foods are now stored in the outdoor coolers – volunteers who are often seniors can simply roll the large yellow bins from the trailer straight into the outdoor cooler. Over the past few months there has been a noticeable increase in people seeking food assistance at the Pantry. Rosemann’s Vice President Dave Hendrikse said, “it is quite rewarding to see the impact of a community working together to help serve its neighbors.” Visit www.ReNewedHopeFoodPantry.org to learn more.
