Organization History

Food Bank of the Rockies (FBR) has been fighting hunger and feeding hope since our founding in 1978 as the "Colorado Food Clearing House." Our vision of feeding those in need began with the collection of food from a nearby Safeway store and supplying only one agency - Little Sisters of the Poor. Today, FBR procures and distributes more than 134,000 meals each day , through our programs and partner agencies throughout our service area. Our mission is to "end hunger by efficiently procuring and distributing food and essentials to the hungry, through our programs and partner agencies.

FBR is able to work toward our mission of distributing food and other essential items to those in need through our main programs: Fighting Hunger Feeding Hope - food distribution through our partner agencies, Denver's Table Food Rescue, FBR's Nutrition Network - direct service programs -Totes of Hope, Kids Cafe meals and after school snacks and FBR's Mobile Pantry.

FBR has a staff of more than 100 employees in Denver, Wyoming, and the Western Slope. Additionally FBR has a pool of more than 20,000 volunteers.

FBR's Board of Directors is made up of more than 20 men and women who volunteer their time and expertise.
