About the organization

Food Bank of the Rockies (FBR) is the largest private hunger-relief organization in the state of Colorado.

Founded in 1978, FBR was known as the Colorado Food Clearing House. Operating from a 900-square-foot schoolroom in Northwest Denver, the fledgling organization collected bread from a nearby Safeway store, our first food donor, and distributed it to Little Sisters of the Poor, our first partner agency.

Today, FBR has extended its reach across Northern Colorado, providing food and supplies to more than 500 hunger-relief programs.

Since 1978, FBR has provided more than 615 million meals for people in need. Last year, through our direct service programs and partner agencies, we distributed nearly 60 million pounds of food, enough to provide more than 134,000 meals each day to children, seniors and families in need. FBR is a member of Feeding America.

FBR has a staff of 112 employees at warehouses in Denver, Wyoming and the Western Slope.

Additionally FBR has a pool of more than 23,000 volunteers, who last year donated nearly 123,000 hours of time – the equivalent of 59 full-time employees!
