Reno-Stead Airport

In a world full of lemons, Reno-Stead Airport hands out asparagus

So many people are out of work right now and not sure how they’ll pay bills.

So it’s encouraging to see Reno-Stead Airport stepping up to help out the Food Bank in its community.

Like many other communities, in just the past two weeks, the food bank in Reno has seen a 30-50% increase in need.

So on Friday, Reno-Stead Airport, the 5,000-acre general aviation facility of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority, served as drive-through Mobile Harvest food distribution site to support those affected by COVID-19.

In just a few hours, the drive-through airport food bank served 417 clients, giving each a bag filled with milk, lettuce, tomatoes, apples and asparagus and a dry-goods box of rice, beans, canned goods and peanut butter.

If you hear of other airports helping out their communities in creative ways right now, please let us know so we can share those stories.
