Summary: Kitchen remodel to meet the County Health Department requirements for serving meals to community members.
LaPuente was established in Alamosa Co in 1981 by 5 women to meet the shelter needs of migrant workers and families. Over the past 38 years, there have been many additional services added to make the lives better for those living in poverty. One of the programs is to serve 3 meals a day, 365 days a year to community families. The complete project will be to remodel and update the kitchen and dining room area to safely prepare and serve meals in a sanitary environment. Unless the update takes place, the Health Department will likely close the facility. There are many activities to the whole project. The purpose of this grant is to
install a grease trap to filter out fats before discharging water into sewer system. The cost to install a grease trap is $4,000. Members of this Rotary Club have completed many projects at LaPuente with work groups of 20 - 25 people; one person has made 39 trips to LaPuente.
This project is "Paid". This means that the funds from the district have been issued. This project is now being ready for implementation. When this is done, a report needs to be uploaded on the project page and the "Reported" button needs to be clicked, then the status of the project will be changed to "Reported".
