Food Bank of the Rockies
12/15/14

Food Bank of the Rockies
 
One in seven Coloradans worry where their next meal will come from. These are people you meet every day - those with low wage jobs, children, seniors on fixed incomes, and those with health issues. Surprisingly, the homeless represent only 10% of our food recipients. Nearly half of the food we distribute feeds children.

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 800 hunger-relief programs. Since 1978, FBR has provided nearly 571 million pounds of food to our member agencies, which translates to nearly 476 million meals for people in need. Last year, we distributed 53.2 million pounds of food, enough to provide more than 121,000 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 12,000 volunteers, who last year donated 131,900 hours of time – the equivalent of 63 full-time employees!

We run an efficient organization, using less than 4 cents of every dollar for administration. 96 cents of every dollar contributed goes towards food distribution. And every dollar we receive provides four meals for our hungry neighbors.
