Racism has no place in our world.
Food Bank of the Rockies is proud to value diversity, inclusion, and equity. Read a statement by Erin Pulling, President & CEO of Food Bank of the Rockies and Patricia (Novosel) Person, Chair, Food Bank of the Rockies Board of Directors.
Critical service providers, such as Food Bank of the Rockies, are needed now, more than ever before. Food Bank of the Rockies' will continue operations through this crisis.
Since mid-March, Food Bank of the Rockies has seen an entirely new level of food insecurity in our communities. We have provided millions of pounds thousands of people throughout Colorado and Wyoming.
We are serving many people who have lost their jobs and are facing food insecurity for the first time. More than 30 percent of the people we’re serving report never needing food assistance before this. And families who were already vulnerable have found themselves in dire need.
We’re distributing more than 4 million pounds of nutritious food each month across the region. Overall food distribution is now up 90% from just 2 ½ months ago!
We will continue to update our website with information. Find out what we're doing by checking out our COVID-19 Response page.
Helping People Thrive
Food is the foundation for a happy, healthy life.
Hunger can be found everywhere – often where you least expect it. The homeless population represents only about 10% of our food recipients. The rest? Everyday people like low-wage workers, children, seniors on fixed incomes and individuals with health issues.
We’re working to feed them all.
You Can be a Hunger Hero!
You might not think $1 can do much. But at Food Bank of the Rockies, that dollar helps provide four meals!
And we depend on volunteers to help us in the warehouse so we can get food to people who need it.
