Over 850 children right here in Routt County could be struggling to get enough food.

In 2022, we distributed 152,143 healthy snacks to Routt County school-age children. If you’re interested in donating to the Rocket Pack program, we would love to work together. To make sure kids get the best snacks possible, there are certain guidelines:

  • All snacks must have 8 or less grams of added sugar
  • Because we distribute in groups, you must donate at least 50 of the same item so that each child in that group gets the same snack
  • Each snack must be individually packaged and not expired or past best-by date

Snacks we always love to receive:

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

Snack donations can be dropped off Monday through Friday between 9 AM - 5 PM at our Steamboat Food Bank location.
