We’re Thankful for Our Partners – Happy Thanksgiving
Congratulations to Twin Parishes, FBR’s 2018 Peak Partner!
Twin Parishes makes a big difference in their community! Open twice a week, six hours a day, with the help of 20 volunteers, the organization serves more than 500 households and 20,000 individuals each year.
FBR recognizes Twin Parishes’ contribution to our Link2Feed launch, helping us get closer to going paperless and allowing us to better count the people served by all our partners and programs.
They run an exemplary, efficient program including CSFP and TEFAP distribution. They turn their paperwork in promptly and treat clients with respect.
We are proud to present this award to Twin Parishes, a truly outstanding FBR partner!

Meet Our Intern, Andrea
We delighted to introduce Andrea Burba, our intern, helping in Nutrition Network and other departments. Andrea, a senior at Vista Peak, landed here through the Pickens Tech Executive Intern Program. She plans on attending Colorado State University to study Business Administration and pre-law. Andrea enjoys breaking down data and learning more about the transportation logistics of our organization. We’re privileged to have Andrea until the beginning of December and appreciate her contributions to a number of programs and departments.
Sometimes Sharing Isn’t OK
Help us keep clients safe. Product received from Food Bank of the Rockies can only be shared with clients, not with other organizations. If you have product you’re unable to distribute, contact us to receive instruction or donate it back. This policy is important for food safety and ensures an accurate register of where food is distributed for recall notifications and reporting.
