At the Elizabeth Food Bank, families in need will find food, donated and freely given by the people of Elizabeth Presbyterian Church, as well as several other churches, community organizations and caring people who wish to share the love and compassion of Jesus Christ.
Families in need can come to the Food Bank as many as five times a year, and receive:
Frozen meats, breads and desserts
Canned tuna, salmon, beef stew and chicken
Hot and cold cereals and pancake or muffin mixes
Pantry items like
flour, sugar, vegetable oil, boxed dinners, spaghetti and tomato sauce, peanut butter and various condiments,
household supplies like toilet paper and laundry soap.
The need keeps is great. In 2016, 143 households, or about 400 individuals, were served at the food bank and we gave out 85 Thanksgiving baskets - complete with a turkey and all the fixings! In addition, in cooperation with two of the EPC T.O.U.G.H. Guys, funds were raised and over 200 Thanksgiving turkeys were delivered to families of wounded soldiers at Fort Carson.
You can help the Food Bank meet these needs by donating any of the food or other items listed above. Or you can volunteer to help out at the Food Bank during open hours from 12:30 to 3:00 p.m. on Fridays and from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. on Saturdays. Or you can help stock the shelves during off hours.
The Elizabeth Food Bank is located at 381 South Banner Street, Elizabeth, Colorado 80107. Please come to the rear entrance.
Current immediate needs: spaghetti sauce, refried or chili beans, dried potatoes.
