FUND A TRUCK TO FEED THE HUNGRY IN RANCHO CORDOVA
 
"We feed everyone who comes to us for food." The Rancho Cordova Community Food Locker has been living by this statement since it was founded in 1987 by a group of concerned Rancho Cordovans.
 
The Food Locker has given out 15 million meals to feed 500,000 hungry families and 1.7 million individuals in our community. None of this would have been possible without a sturdy truck to pick up food donations and deliver them to those in need.
 
Now, the Food Locker needs help funding a new truck to ensure this service continues! Since the non-profit organization is completely funded by donations, they are looking for generous persons, organizations, and businesses to pitch in to help them reach their $40,000 fundraising goal.
 
"Our clients come from all walks of life - unemployed or between jobs, seniors, the homeless, working poor, or simply those having bad luck," said founder Walt Little. "Big-hearted volunteers and donors have always pitched in to make the food locker the best it can be in Rancho Cordova, and we need your help once again."
 
All donations will contribute towards the cost of the new truck and any maintenance or repairs needed to get it up and running.
 
Do you want to make a donation towards the cause? Contact Walt Little at (916) 362-1385 today!
YOU CAN HELP IMPROVE OUR BIKEWAYS

Thank you to the residents who attended our recent Bicycle Master Plan outreach meeting. If you were unable to make the meeting, you still have an opportunity to give us your input! 

The 2016 Draft Bicycle Master Plan is available for review here. We are looking for your
 feedback about anything else you'd like us to include in Rancho Cordova's vision for bicycling over the next 5 years.

Please submit your comments by Wednesday, March 16th to Travis Evans by email at tevans@cityofranchocordova.org or by phone to (916) 851-8906. Thank you for your participation!
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT PUBLIC HEARING

Local youth are stepping out of their comfort zone to learn something new. The Folsom Cordova Community Partnership  Group Mentoring Program broadens youth perspectives by participating in activities that challenge them. This is one way we could spend $2.5 million in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) federal funding.

The City of Rancho Cordova is preparing a five-year Consolidated Plan primarily for CDBG funds and providing opportunities for citizens to participate in the development of the document.

The City invites interested residents and stakeholders to attend a public hearing work session of the City Council on Tuesday, March 29th at 5:30 pm at Rancho Cordova City Hall, 2729 Prospect Park Drive. 

Questions ? Please contact Peter Ibrahim by email at pibrahim@cityofranchocordova.org or by phone to (916) 851-8785. 
 
 
We always love hearing from our residents! Let us know how you're  getting a FRESH TAKE on Rancho Cordova today!
