Who Are We?
The Community Food Bank is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving any Mesa County resident in need. Residents may utilize the Community Food Bank up to nine times each calendar year, receiving a three day emergency supply of food for each family member. The Food Bank is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM, excluding holidays. Our services are implemented by over 40 volunteers and overseen by a volunteer board of directors. Food donations are accepted from area churches, individuals, businesses, organizations and food drives. These generous donations help to offset the cost of purchasing food from local grocery stores and the Western Slope Food Bank of the Rockies, both of whom are very generous in their support and commitment of the Community Food Bank. Monetary donations are also accepted and supplement grant revenue to fill in where food donations leave off. The Community Food Bank is able to distribute much more food per dollar than an individual. The cost to provide 3 meals for 3 days is as little as $3 per person. How can you help? Contact our Director, Darcy Johnson, to volunteer your time and to provide food or monetary donations. (970) 640-0336 | email@example.com

The Community Food Bank invites community service organizations to help us move forward our goal of providing hunger relief through a three day supply of food in an emergency food box up to nine times a year to any and all Mesa County individuals and family experiencing crisis. The Community Food Bank is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving any Mesa County resident. Our services are implemented by volunteers and a volunteer board of directors.
Currently, we need your assistance bulk packing product such as rice, oats, beans and dry milk into portions for distribution for our food boxes. Bulk packing can be completed with as little as one individual or up to 12 comfortably. The best time to volunteer is when the food bank is serving clients - between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. However, weekend and after service hours are welcomed and can be arranged as well.
We anticipate serving more than 4,000 hungry Mesa County residents in November and December, as our weather gets colder.
