Food Bank of the Rockies Requests Support to feed families

Food Bank of the Rockies
During the frigid winter months, many of our neighbors are making tough choices that they shouldn’t have to make — feed their families or pay their bills.A startling news update is shedding light on how serious the situation is: Utility costs in Colorado have DOUBLED since this time last year.Food costs are up too, pushing family budgets to their breaking point. Many of our neighbors need more support now than they did at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, individuals and families who receive government assistance will see their Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits reduced by $90 per person beginning in March. For a family of four, that’s $360 less per month that they will have for groceries.That’s why we have set an ambitious goal in the next 48 hours to raise enough funds to provide 500,000 meals to children and families across Colorado this winter. Can we count on you to help us get there?Your gift today will help make sure that our neighbors will continue to be able to count on Food Bank of the Rockies for nourishing food — even when faced with the toughest of choices.At this moment, it is critical that our shelves stay stocked so we can reach as many Coloradans experiencing food insecurity as possible. 500,000 meals may sound like a huge number. It is. But we know this community can do incredible things when we come together.Every $1 you’re able to give will provide the equivalent of 3 meals to nourish our neighbors this winter. Can we count on your support today?Thank you for being part of our mission to support neighbors experiencing hunger wherever and however they need.
