Twin Rocks Trading Post Feed the Hungry Campaign continues with food boxes for area hungry.
Twin Rocks trading post owner Steve Simpson announced some minor changes to the food distribution program he and manager Fraces van der Steppen have crafted.
The Shop in Utah Grant the business received from the Governor’s Office of Economic Development was able to fund more than 10,000 meals for area families in need.
Simpson and van der Steppen have partnered with Bluff Area Mutual Aid, Shamrock Foods, Whitehorse High and the Rural Utah Project to provide wholesome fresh foods to area residents that might otherwise go hungry.
Early in the shut down of businesses due to the pandemic, the efforts were not intended to be an ongoing program. The delays in getting the world back to normal changed that focus. Simpson and van der Steppen both knew that hunger in this area didn’t arrive with COVID-19 and wouldn't depart once Dr Fauci gave the all clear.
It was apparent that a food bank was something the area truly needed. Simpson and van der Steppen acted to establish one.
Originally it looked like the permanent site of the food bank would be the nearby St Christopher’s Mission but some adjustments needed to be made. St Christophers will still identify families in need but arrangements for a storehouse and distribution point are being finalized a little nearer the trading post.
The contents of the food boxes include staples like bread, eggs, fresh fruit, vegetables, milk, meat and butter. They also include things such as paper towels, and dish soap.
And here’s where you can help. Go eat at Twin Rocks new Crazy Crow Cafe in Bluff.
That’s it. All you need to do is order something wonderful off the menu and your purchase will be matched dollar for dollar. If you purchase a $10.00 meal, $10.00 will go to help feed hungry families. This offer will continue until $50,000.00 has been provided for hunger relief.
Meanwhile take a look at the picture accompanying this article. Steve and Frances rolled out a pretty thorough Feed the Hungry program from the looks of things.
