Continuing to Meet the Needs of our Communities Post-COVID

Since March 2020, our focus at Food Bank of the Rockies has been on serving our partners and clients with tenacity and strength. Last year, the need for food in our service areas increased by upwards of 50%, with some months climbing as high as 80%.

Today, as more people become vaccinated and many jobs return, it would be easy to think that the burden of food insecurity would be lifted off the shoulders of our clients. However, this is not the case for many, as 42 million people across the nation are expected to experience food insecurity in 2021.

Food Bank of the Rockies greatly benefited from USDA food programs put in place during the pandemic. Most of these initiatives ended recently, sparking us to shift our focus to creating new programs and supplementing existing programs to continue to best serve our communities. It’s thanks to the generosity of donors like you and the effort of volunteers like Margaret and Debbie (see story below) that we are able to do this. Read on to learn more about our efforts and how you can support the work we do daily.


“It’s the way I was raised: You do what you can to help others because you never know if you’re going to need it. There may be a time that I’m going to need it,” said Sheila, a Mobile Pantries volunteer.
