Happy 2022! We experienced our most impactful year to date at Food Bank of the Rockies in 2021, not only in terms of pounds of food provided to communities facing hunger, but also in the expansion of signature programs like our Culturally Responsive Food Initiative and prioritizing the distribution of fresh fruits and vegetables through our new FRESH program. We were able to do all of this thanks to you, our dedicated donors and volunteers. We are so grateful to each and every one of you!
Keeping the momentum of 2021 going, we are looking ahead at 2022 with hope and determination. We invite you to join us in our excitement for what we anticipate to be another impactful year in terms of serving our community with equity, dignity, and care.
Some of the ways we plan to do that include:
- Increasing culturally responsive education and capacity-building opportunities for our 800+ Hunger Relief Partners
- Increasing the total product sourced from Colorado suppliers by 50%
- Expanding our home-delivery program for EverGreen Boxes™, a program of Everyday Eats (see more information on this program below)
- Growing our summer and after-school kids-meal programs to reach more kids in more places
While we cannot know what 2022 will bring, we can say with confidence that Food Bank of the Rockies will continue to show up in the communities we serve with tenacity and dedication. We invite you — as a donor, volunteer, partner, or potential future team member — to join us in our mission to ignite the power of community to nourish people facing hunger.
