Rudolph Foods is Committed to Improving Our Community
John Rudolph has a passion for Lima, Ohio where he resides and where RFC was founded. Over the years he has been involved with fund raising and development efforts for various community projects. Including: Lima Streetscape project in the 1970’s, Lima/Allen County Civic and Convention Center in the 1980’s, New Lima Area Family YMCA and Ottawa River Bike Path in the 1990’s, and most recently restoration of an 1880’s historic landmark to house a new Business Services Center for the Lima Area Chamber Foundation. It opened in April, 2009. His vision and project list will out live him. Fortunately, he has passed down his passion for involvement to improve communities to his family and other associates.
Southern Recipe Punkin Chunk
Southern Recipe spent the 2nd year in a row in Delaware at the annual Science Channel’s annual Punkin Chunkin. We sponsored a Dayton area pumpkin chucking team and got to watch them launch pumpkins over 2,000 feet!
