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!

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.
