Since opening its doors in 1983, the Hubbard County Food Shelf has provided families in the Park Rapids area with emergency food assistance. As its operations expanded and adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic, food shelf volunteers and partners identified energy efficiency projects to save energy and improve the organization’s operations.
We spoke with assistant director Denny Ulmer to learn more about these recent investments, including LED lighting upgrades supported by CERTs.
