The River Valley Regional Food Bank on Wednesday provided more than 1,200 pounds of dog food to the food bank’s newest partner agency the Artemis Project.
The food bank provided the 1,221 pounds of dog food to the Artemis Project through its partnership with Feeding America, and the Caplan-Bensley Foundation’s Jazzy’s Place Dog Food Initiative.
The Artemis Project is a nonprofit that provides shelter, rescue and adoption services to more than 200 dogs, according to agency volunteer Dana Falleur, who said the agency is grateful to receive the food to help feed the animals.
River Valley Regional Food Bank Director Tracy Engel said not only is it the goal of the food bank to feed the community’s hungry families, but to make sure that our furry friends have shelter and food, as well.
The food bank is proud to work with and support the Artemis Project and its mission, and thanks Feeding America and the Caplan-Bensley Foundation’s Jazzy’s Place Dog Food Initiative for the opportunity to feed hungry animals in need
