Today, we’re distributing 170,000 pounds of food to 88 partner food pantries in the metro area. The food, purchased with $150,000, contributed by the community through donations to 9Cares Colorado Shares, including contributions at King Soopers’ registers, will provide about 142,000 meals to hungry men, women and children in our community.
Items included tuna, beef ravioli, black beans, diced tomatoes, spaghetti sauce and spaghetti, chocolate pudding, corn flakes, chicken noodle soup, rice, beef stew, quick oats, granola bars, peanut butter and jelly.
We know how important this food is to our partner food pantries, but rather than tell you, we had a chance to talk to Don Cadwallader, Driector of Fish of Westminster/WUMB. His pantry serves many families in need and he was happy to say thank you!
