Turnout high for 1st mobile food pantry distribution

Moffat County residents lined up Thursday morning outside the Boys & Girls Club of Craig waiting for Food Bank of the Rockies’ mobile food pantry to make its first distribution in Craig. “There was a big rush at 11:30 (when distribution began),” said Starlene Collins, Western Slope manager for FBR, noting that about 92 people received assistance in the first half of the two-hour distribution alone. According to the agency’s website, FBR utilizes its mobile pantries in areas where partner agencies are either not available, or as is the case locally, may need help meeting the needs of the community.
