Longmont United Hospital is pleased to be one of the inaugural sites for the Longmont Community Fridges project sponsored by Longmont Food Rescue and UpRoot Colorado.

“We are grateful for the support of Dr. Pearson, Cindy Noble, LUH Café staff and everyone at LUH as we launch the Longmont Community Fridges project. Food insecurity affects one-in-three Colorado residents, and hosting a Community Fridge on-site speaks to the generosity of spirit that is alive and well at LUH,” said David Laskarzewski, co-director at UpRoot Colorado.

The Community Fridge and dry-storage filing cabinet at LUH are located in an alcove between the Emergency Department and Main entrances. They offer grab-and-go food options as well as seasonal, fresh produce and packaged goods to anyone who needs something to eat, no questions asked. To date, the LUH Café staff has generously stocked the LUH Community Fridge with sandwiches, yogurt parfaits, fresh salads and more.

This is one more way Longmont United Hospital is supporting the overall health of our Longmont community. In addition to LUH, a second Longmont Community Fridge is located at Agape Safe Haven at 10656 Park Ridge Avenue.
