Our Community Foundation is proud to be establishing a brand new program: The Eagle River Valley Food Bank.
The Eagle River Valley boasts some of the best summer and winter recreation, tourism, and premiere mountain living opportunities in the state of Colorado, including Vail and Beaver Creek Resorts. With high destination mountain attractions near by the cost of living is significantly higher with employment opportunities often limited to seasonal work in the service industry. Many local families work long hours and struggle to get by living pay check to pay check. As a result hunger is a very prevalent issue impacting hundreds of families in the valley.
The Eagle River Valley Food Bank will serve as a central hub of operations to collect and distribute food donations, develop educational programs, and engage in community partnerships and sustainable practices to address the hunger challenges throughout the Eagle River Valley.
Come join us in our mission to end hunger in our valley.
