Walsh Community Grocery Store
- Business Lending
To support the store’s significant upgrade needs in 2018, the Colorado Fresh Food Financing Fund (CO4F), administered by CHFA, provided a $50,000 grant and a $50,000 loan. CO4F supported the replacement of outdated and inefficient equipment with new refrigeration and freezers. The new equipment improves energy efficiency, lowers utility and repair costs, extends product shelf-life, and enhances fresh food access for shoppers.
“We’re very thankful for the partnership we have with you,” said Board Director, Beverly Lohrey, regarding CO4F. “It made it possible for us to update our store and bring it into the 21st century.” Board Chair, Alan Packard added that CO4F, “was a lifesaver for us and for our community.”
