2021 Grant Recipient

La Casita Center

AWARD: $105,000


PROJECT: Expand, upgrade, and improve the Center‘s on-site kitchen and food pantry facilities.

How this funding will impact this organization:  

The demand for our food pantry and soup kitchen has recently increased dramatically. The investment from Impact100 will go towards the physical upgrades to kitchen and pantry facilities to ensure proper handling and storage of food. This includes shelving, improvements to freezer, refrigerator, and inventory systems and necessary building upgrades for the pantry and kitchen expansion. These upgrades will improve the food safety standards and the quality of items available through La Casita‘s food pantry program. In addition, they will enable our food program to include stocking fresh and perishable foods that are essential for a healthy diet. 

This investment will sustain our food and hospitality program for years with a beautiful, spacious, and commercial-standard pantry facility and kitchen. The families that we accompany will see that they are valued, welcomed, and worthy. This project will showcase the investment from a group like Impact100 that believes in the leadership of a Latina feminist organization.
