The Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County recently received a $50,000 donation from PG&E to support cold storage, lighting, insulation and other improvements to increase energy efficiencies at the Food Bank’s new facility, which opened in November.
The grant enabled upgrades that included custom-built, drive-in refrigerator and freezer units, which replaced older, smaller units that were less energy-efficient and more expensive to operate. The savings will allow for expanded distribution of fresh produce, lean protein and dairy to local low-income families, children and seniors in need.
