Mission Statement

We help families thrive by efficiently procuring and distributing food and essentials to the hungry through our programs and partner agencies.

Organization History

Food Bank of the Rockies 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 bread from nearby groceries to share with a few partners in hunger relief. Today, Food Bank of the Rockies procures and distributes more than 155,000 meals each day, through our programs and partner agencies throughout our service area.

Food Bank of the Rockies distributes food and other essential items to those in need through our main programs: Fighting Hunger Feeding Hope - food distribution through our partner agencies, Grocery Rescue, Nutrition Network - direct service programs -Totes of Hope, Kids Cafe meals and after school snacks, food boxes for older adults and Food Bank of the Rockies' Mobile Pantry.

Our staff includes more than 100 employees in Denver, Wyoming, and the Western Slope. Additionally more than 20,000 volunteers help us each year.

Our Board of Directors is made up of 19 men and women who volunteer their time and expertise.
