Regina Rosen Food First Fund Grants 2021
Regina Rosen Food First Fund Grants continue to help local COVID-19 response efforts
Community charities that provide food related supports to their residents continue to experience the effects of COVID-19. The organizations receiving grants from the Regina Rosen Food First Fund provide for the basic provision of healthy food to vulnerable populations. During the pandemic demand has grown at the same time as organizations experience a decrease in donations as well as extra costs to ensure that their staff, volunteers and clients remain safe.
Congratulations to our grantees!
