Food delivered to date: 250,000 lbs
With the support of our volunteers each week, we help reduce the suffering and pain associated with hunger. We have approximately 50 people helping us execute our mission each week. Our packing volunteers range from individuals, to families (all ages), to corporate or group teams. Our volunteer coordinator works with the Helping Habit coordination program to manage those interested in helping us reduce food insecurity.
The process begins each week with a volunteer who drives to the Food Bank of the Rockies to collect our food order. Upon arrival back to Jeffco Eats, volunteers unload the truck, stock the shelves and begin the process of packing our food totes. A few days later, the food totes are then delivered by volunteer drivers to over 29 non profits and section 8 apartments.
