The vast majority of the food in our Food Banks is donated from generous neighbors. Through individual donations, food drives, and business partnerships, we are able to meet the needs of Routt County.

We strive to serve healthy, quality food to our neighbors. If you would like to donate, our Food Banks accept most food and beverage donations, as long as products have not expired and packages remain unopened.

If you’d like to hold a food drive for LiftUp, please contact us at 970-870-8804.

Here are some items that we love:

  • Produce
  • Canned goods
  • Personal items
  • Dental hygiene
  • Feminine products
  • Infant care
  • Garden supplies
  • Seeds and starts
  • Seeds & seedlings

We also serve 600 snacks daily to kids in Routt County through our Rocket Pack Program. To make sure kids get the best snacks possible, there are certain guidelines:

  • 8g sugar or less
  • Must donate at least 50 of the same item (because we distribute in groups, we want each child in that group to get the same snack)
  • Must be individually packaged and not expired or past best by date

Rocket Pack Snacks we always love to receive:

  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • Goldfish – individually packaged
  • Low sodium chips – individually packaged
  • Granola bars
  • Fruit snacks
  • Pretzels
  • Beef Jerky
