Thank you for supporting Food Bank of the Rockies!
MCA Denver's food drive partnership with Food Bank of the Rockies is coming to a close, and we need your help ensuring delivery of food to communities in need.
In 2020, Food Bank of the Rockies distributed more than 100 million pounds of food, which is 43% more than the food they distributed in the previous year. This April, we are partnering with Food Bank of the Rockies to raise additional funds and donations to support families in need during these challenging times and we are asking our MCA Denver community to help out by donating during our first-ever virtual and in-person food drive!
Food Bank of the Rockies is the largest private hunger-relief organization in Colorado and Wyoming. Founded in 1978, their organization provides food and essentials to people in need across 30 counties in northern Colorado and the entire state of Wyoming. In collaboration with more than 800 hunger relief partners, they work together to ensure more than 850,000 people in our service area struggling with food insecurity have access to nutritious food. Food Bank of the Rockies has seen a tremendous increase in need across Colorado and Wyoming as a result of COVID-19. 1 in 7 people and 1 in 5 children face food insecurity in Colorado. And 1 in 6 people and 1 in 4 children are facing food insecurity in Wyoming. 96.5% of their total contributions are directly invested in programs. Their monthly food distribution volume has increased by 50% over the same period last year, with some months more than 80% over pre-COVID-19 levels. Right now, they’re distributing enough food to provide more than 250,000 meals daily.
During this month of April, we are asking our MCA Denver community to give if you are able to help support their efforts and provide meals to families in need.
