This project is similar to P-3295 but extends the Pop-Up Pantry availability to additional dates in the Fort Collins area.
The COVID-19 pandemic has increased demand to the Food Bank of Larimer County. The Pop-Up Pantries are a new concept for distributing food at extended locations and hours so that access to food can be improved to meet demand.
This project funds two additional Pop-Up Pantries to expand food availability in Fort Collins. Each Pop-Up Pantry costs $1,500 each day and serves 200 families. These Pop-Up Pantries will be made available in Fort Collins in June and July 2020.
In addition to providing funds for the pantry, there may also a role for Rotarians as volunteers to ensure the pantry is operated safely and efficiently.
The two Pop-Up Pantries funded by this grant will be developed with Heather, the Development Director at the Food Bank of Larimer County. Heather is also a Rotarian with the Fort Collins, Foothills Rotary club. She will keep our members advised of progress and any volunteer opportunities for operating these Pop-Up Pantries.
