The Community Food Bank is holding their annual food drives in Grand Junction. These are the locations of the Community Food Bank food drives coming up soon.

Community Food Bank's food drives will be:

November 3rd:

  • Safeway on Horizon - 681 Horizon Drive from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

November 17th:

  • Redlands Safeway - 2512 Broadway from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

December 8th:

  • Safeway off Patterson - 2901 F Road from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

According to the Community Food Bank's President of Board of Directors, Biff Messinger:

We're going to make it really easy for everybody. We'll have volunteers standing in front of the grocery store, Safeway, and they will be handing out lists of most need food items at the food bank.

At the top of the list, given the season, it's going to be turkey and ham and all of the fixings that go with a holiday meal. And peanut butter and canned vegetables, canned fruit, those kinds of things.

They always welcome cash because they can buy more than the average person because of the discounts they're given. For every $1 that's donated, the Community Food Bank is able to purchase $4 in food for our Mesa County community.
