Need isn’t always conveniently located, which is why Food Bank of the Rockies deploys more than 70 Mobile Pantries to bring food directly to communities where it is needed most. Serving urban and rural neighborhoods throughout Colorado and Wyoming, Mobile Pantries operate free of cost to Hunger Relief Partners and clients and, in fiscal year 2023, provided enough food for more than 408,000 meals every month.
