About Food Bank of the Rockies
Founded in 1978, Food Bank of the Rockies was originally 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, Food Bank of the Rockies has extended its reach across northern Colorado, providing food and supplies to more than 800 hunger-relief programs.
Since 1978, Food Bank of the Rockies has provided more than 700 million meals for people in need. In 2021, through our direct service programs and partners, we have distributed over 66 million pounds of food, the equivalent of nearly 54 million meals annually or 226,000 meals every day to children, seniors and families in need. Food Bank of the Rockies is a member of Feeding America and of Feeding Colorado, a consortium of the five food banks operating in Colorado.
Food Bank of the Rockies has a staff of nearly 200 employees at distribution centers in Denver, Wyoming and the Western Slope.
