To respond safely and as effectively as possible, Food Bank of the Rockies has created an Emergency Support Team, prepared to assist people in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

CALL TO ACTION

We plan to continue distributing pre-made boxes, with the support of our food donors, by organizing a food drop-off program for the most vulnerable members of our community. This includes senior citizens and anyone else who either cannot or should not come to our drive-up food distribution. And this is where we need your help!


DICP is looking for able-bodied volunteers who can help us sort and make food boxes for

distribution. We need volunteers in the following areas:

  • To pick up and deliver the boxes, which requires a volunteer (who can lift a 40 lb food box) and a vehicle (large enough to deliver 5+ food boxes).

  • To help at our outdoor drive-up food pantry, which involves directing cars and moving pre-made food boxes (up to 40 lbs).

  • To make food boxes for delivery, which involves sorting food into easily transportable boxes.

Obviously, volunteers must be in good health and without compromised immune systems and cannot have had cold or flu symptoms within their household in the past 14 days.

  • Quality boxes for the pre-made food packs
