All Faiths Food Bank was recently awarded a Southface Institute GoodUse grant of $27,000—which the organization matched—to make numerous energy upgrades. Some of the improvements All Faiths has made include window film that will reduce heat and infrared light; the installation of automatic faucets and replacement of traditional toilets with low-water models; the addition of UV and HEPA systems, which will improve safety for employees and volunteers and reduce stress on the air conditioning system; and the purchase and installation of low-wattage LED and fluorescent lights. The grant—the first All Faiths has received from Southface Institute—was facilitated by the Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation. All Faiths was one of just 19 nonprofit organizations nationwide to be named a GoodUse grantee this year.
