What We Can Do Together
What do you do when the world shifts all around you? You look at your priorities. For the Alamosa School District and La Puente it was clear that food access was going to be increasingly important in the months to come. Both saw the need growing very quickly. Supporters of La Puente’s Food Bank Network of the San Luis Valley made sure that there was enough money to buy food but finding food to buy was an alarming concern. Local sources had been hit hard and didn’t have extra to sell. Alamosa Schools, like many valley schools, wondered how long their food budget would last as they saw need increase among their students and families. While La Puente sent out feelers for food sources, they eventually solved the immediate needs by contracting directly with a wholesaler to by a semi-truck of food. At the same time, La Puente became the recipient on a large load of diapers, formula and wipes, and the Alamosa food bank agreed to act as storage. So when one of the feelers led to a food lead, the Food Bank Network didn’t have the capacity to store or sort a very generous donation from an unlikely source.
When the network of ARC Thrift Stores on the Front Range closed to the public, they added a food drive while they continued to receive other donations. This drive produced an amazing amount of food, so when Janet Foos , an ARC representative, heard of the struggle to find food she reached out to La Puente and offered to share. This food would be needed, only the Food Bank had a semi coming and all those diapers and couldn’t take on more at the time. La Puente’s Development Director, Amanda Pearson knew that the Alamosa Schools were feeding a lot of people, and with the schools empty, they also had some storage capacity. She called her friend, Jeremy Silva, who had been focusing on meal delivery, since his role at the transportation department was not as essential with no children to transport. Jeremy and Janet started to work out the details. It took some time for the ARC to put together the load for Alamosa, but their big-hearted staff were worried about Alamosa kids, so they sent $500 in Safeway gift cards for the school to buy food while they put the large food donation together. On May 8 the donation was ready. ARC took it their Pueblo store. Again, community came together to pick it up. Charlie Sanchez from Energy Resource Center had the right equipment. He and his crew helped the school district to bring 4 pallets of food back to help with meals.

A BIG thank you to Nancy Torres (OMS Nurse), Angela Heersink (OMS MTSS), and Tom Hays (AHS Counselor) for putting on a Virtual Family Night!
