The inside of the Rosemount Family Resource Center was transformed by Rotary Club of Rosemount Rotarians on Saturday, Nov. 5.

Members of the Rosemount Rotary Club gathered at the Rosemount Family Resource Center (RFRC) to paint the building's newly renovated inside on Saturday, Nov. 5.

During a recent lunch meeting held at the (RFRC), Shira Rabinowicz, the volunteer coordinator at the center, shared the city had obtained a Community Development Block Recovery Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to pay for improvements to the center. The grant was for $75,000 and is locally managed by the Dakota County Community Development Agency. The funds allowed the center to undergo a remondel of the kitchen, which previously did not meet state standards for a facility serving food the public. The remodel included a commercial dishwasher, commercial hood over the stove and a commercial microwave. Additionally, the city council approved work to repair an outdoor facet, replacedment of damanged drywall, and motion-sensored lights.

With the updates made, one of the final tasks to complete was painting and Rotary Club of Rosemount Rotarians were happy to oblige.

RFRC is located at 14521 Cimmaron Ave. W. and serves about 500 people a month from its food shelf. It is operated by the non-profit 360 Communities, which runs six food shelves located in locations throughout Dakota County, including Apple Valley, Burnsville, Lakeville, Rosemount, Apple Valley and Farmington.
