Food Bank of the Rockies (FBR) was founded in 1978 and known as the Colorado Food Clearing House. Operating from a 900 square-foot schoolroom in northwest Denver, the fledgling organization collected food from nearby Safeway stores and distributed it to one needy agency. Today, the Food Bank has extended its reach across northern Colorado and into Wyoming, providing food supplies to more than 900 hunger relief programs. FBR exists to create an efficient means of channeling food to participating agencies that count on us to meet the needs of the hungry. Thanks to partnerships with food donors, fund donors, volunteers and agencies last year, Food Bank of the Rockies distributed 16,159,873 pounds of food and essential household items, more than ever before.
