Summit County Cares May Food Drive

Summit County Cares Food Drive: May 1-31

May is a dire month for many people in our community as they face job layoffs or transitions in between the winter and summer seasons that come with living in Summit County. The four food banks in the area, Family & Intercultural Resource Center (FIRC), Dillon Community Church, Father Dyer and Church of Christ, all make keeping food on the table a reality for families and individuals struggling through the off-season. During the high-demand times, each of the food banks will supply over 2,000 pounds of food each month to over 200 people. This is why the goal of the Summit County Cares food drive is to raise 10,000 pounds of food to help keep shelves stocked.

People can donate money to The Summit Foundation’s Summit County Cares Food Drive fund, which will allow food banks to buy food from wholesalers or non-perishable items can be dropped off at FIRC, Dillon and Breckenridge City Market locations, or the post offices in Frisco, Dillon and Silverthorne. Items in need are canned tuna, peanut butter, canned fruit, beans, rice, pasta, pasta sauce, baby diapers, baby wipes and toiletries.

Thank you to The Summit Daily News, Krystal 93, Always Mountain Time, Comcast Spotlight and Summit TV for their support.
