Totes of Hope® Partners – Hand out Double the Totes before the Holiday Break!

With the holidays quickly approaching, we want to make sure kids are getting food to last during the holiday break from school. We are more than happy to accommodate a double pick-up the week before their holiday break. If you’re interested, contact Zach Kellerman, 303-375-5865, zkellerman@foodbankrockies.org


Watch Out! Big Trucks and Picking Up

Our warehouse and parking lot are busy places. When picking up your order, watch out for other vehicles and use caution around large tractor trailers. When large trucks are docking, be patient and allow them to finish their maneuvers and dock before driving in front of or behind them. Please wait for them to wave your vehicle through or make sure the truck comes to a complete stop before you pass them. Share this reminder with all your shoppers and drivers. Let’s have a safe winter!


Have You Met Brittany?

Our Outreach Division is excited to introduce Brittany Feltenberger, our newest Outreach Representative.  Brittany was drawn to FBR after learning about how we help while working at one of our partner agencies. She grew up in a military family and moved often. Living in Colorado about 6 years, Brittany enjoys hiking and spending time with her dogs. Her favorite part about working at Food Bank of the Rockies is the family feel we have in the organization. Please join us in welcoming her to the team.

Can we direct clients to your agency for additional holiday assistance? We often get calls from neighbors needing extra help this time of year. If you’re offering holiday boxes, meals, turkeys, toys etc. please let us know so we can spread the word and holiday cheer.

Winter Nutrition – Eating Healthy To Protect Our Bodies During The Cold Months

During the winter months it can be hard for people to maintain a well-balanced diet. From holiday food to heavy comfort food, this time of year is especially challenging. Below is a list of vitamin packed and nutrient filled foods to help support our bodies and immune systems during a time when germs are at a high.

Vitamin C-

The benefits: Vitamin C has the ability to boost immune systems. A healthy immune system is the first light of defense when our bodies are fighting off viruses.

Foods containing vitamin C: Citrus, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, leafy greens such as spinach, kale, and butter lettuce. *For health concerns, please avoid romaine lettuce.

Foods Rich in Iron-

The benefits: Iron helps to preserve many functions in the body, including general energy and focus, gastrointestinal processes, the immune system, and the regulation of body temperature.

Foods high in Iron: Legumes, red meat, tofu, lentils, dark chocolate, nuts, dried apricots, broccoli, spinach, and turkey.

Remember, eat well and stay healthy this winter!  This will make the holidays more enjoyable.
