Food Bank Prepares for Holiday Season

Local News

Thanksgiving is just next week, and there are a lot of people worrying about what to make. But for many in our community, a traditional Thanksgiving dinner just isn’t something they can afford. Grand Valley nonprofits are trying to help.

The Food Bank of the Rockies is facing their busiest time of year, as they prepare for various Thanksgiving events and the winter holidays just around the corner. Although they are very well prepared when it comes to this hectic season, they could use a little extra help.

The food bank has been very busy organizing donations in their huge warehouse to send to two different partners for Thanksgiving, The Salvation Army and Canyonview Vineyard Church.

They realize that having the picture perfect holiday meal is expensive, and for many people, impossible. With their food items received through drives and donations, they’re trying to help out.

But even though they are more than prepared for the holidays, there is one more item they need: turkey. They prefer frozen over fresh since they can save them in their two large freezers. And besides that vital food item, they also are in need of volunteers, something they could use all year round.

But for right now, they are on track to help making families holidays across the Grand Valley perfect.

Those interested in donating or volunteering can visit The Food Bank of the Rockies in person, or contact them online here: https://www.foodbankrockies.org/volunteer/volunteer-food-bank-rockies-western-slope-branch/
