Volunteers work to organize a large food donation from Craig Middle School at the Inter Faith Food Bank in Craig last November. Organizations such as Feeding America and Food Bank of the Rockies have seen a transition from using pantries in emergency situations to using them on a regular basis. Food Bank of the Rockies mobile pantry will be in Craig on Tuesday.

Food pantry clients moving from emergency to monthly use

The Food Bank of the Rockies mobile pantry unit will roll into Craig next Tuesday as one of its monthly stops on the Western Slope. As usual, there most likely will be a long line of people waiting for food at the Craig Boys & Girls Club. Although not having enough to eat usually isn’t associated with the American culture of super-sized fast food, the Food Bank of the Rockies reports one in seven Coloradans go hungry.
