LOVELAND, COLO. – September 2022 — The Food Bank for Larimer County was the recipient of a $10,000 KeyBank Foundation grant to support hunger relief in Fort Collins.
With the high cost of living in Colorado, and a spike in the price of groceries, the budgets of many families in Larimer County have become strained. As clients turn to the Food Bank to supplement more of their nutrition, KeyBank’s $10,000 grant will help to provide a means for a variety of fresh and nutritious food. The funds awarded will give the equivalent of 20,000 meals’ worth of food.
“It’s our supporters, like KeyBank, that are testament to the power that partnerships have to fight food insecurity in our community,” said Food Bank for Larimer County CEO Amy Pezzani. “These generous funds are helping us meet the needs of clients in an extremely challenging time.”
In 2022 alone, the Food Bank provided 8 million meals’ worth of food and services for more than 30,000 people.
