New Grocery Carts for Clients

Thanks to the Ames Rotary 2022 Community Grant and Walmart community Grant. Food at First was able to purchase 120 metal grocery carts to distribute to our clients. At Food at First, it is one of our goals to support our clients’ ability to take however much food that they need with as few limitations as possible.

Supplying grocery carts has already enabled a more efficient and reliable process for clients to transport their food to their homes.
