Give Food

Food is our first name. Food is our first priority.

Nourishing our communities starts with nourishing their bodies. Nearly 60% of the food we distribute comes from the generous donations of retailers, wholesalers, farmers, and the food industry. We partner with organizations big and small to reduce food waste and source high quality, nutritious food. We also gratefully accept food donations from our community, all of which helps us help those in need.

Host a Fundraiser.

Bringing together your friends, family, neighbors or co-workers for a common cause is a wonderful way to help your community. To make your efforts as impactful as possible, consider hosting a Virtual Food Drive. It’s just like a traditional food drive, except instead of collecting food you collect funds (which then let us buy more food for a better price!).

To our generous donors:

We can’t begin to tell you how meaningful it is to receive food donations from families, individuals, and non-food industry businesses in our community. Whether it’s part of a family tradition or a special food drive that brings together neighbors or co-workers, there’s something transformative in the act of collecting and giving food. Please email events@foodbankrockies.org with questions about donating food.

We also ask that you consider how to make the most of your generosity. When you donate funds instead of food, your gift can go even further. Using your funds, we’re able to purchase food in much larger quantities and for wholesale prices not available to the public. This means a $10 donation buys a lot more than $10 buys at the grocery store. Donate now.

Donations from the food industry.

We welcome ongoing partnerships and individual large-scale donations from organizations in and around the food industry. Food donations made in good faith are covered by the Good Samaritan Law and could entitle you to a tax deduction. Some of our food industry partners include:

  • Manufacturers
  • Producers/Farmers
  • Distributors
  • Grocers
  • Caterers
  • Restaurants

We can’t do any of this without your support.

Help us keep helping.
