The funds that we raise are directly put to use in the community to help people in need and to keep our facilities operational. We know that most families have a hard time making ends meet. Even with both parents working, after paying for the rent/mortgage, utilities, car loan(s) and insurance, gas, etc.. we barely have enough money for the day to day necessities. Our kids are growing so fast, it seems we have to buy new shoes and clothes every other month. Our Concept: You donate necessary items (clothing, non-perishable foods, diapers, blankets, etc…) to American Charities, Inc. and we distribute it right back to families in need in the community absolutely FREE.

Today, FBR has extended its reach across Northern Colorado, providing food and supplies to more than 1000 hunger-relief programs. Since 1978, FBR has provided nearly 472 million pounds of food to our member agencies, which translates to 369 million meals for people in need. Last year, we distributed 41.3 million pounds of food, enough to provide 88,000 meals each day to children, seniors and families in need. FBR is a member of Feeding America. FBR has a staff of 112 employees at warehouses in Denver and the Western Slope. Additionally FBR has a pool of more than 10,000 volunteers, who last year donated 133,104 hours of time – the equivalent of 64 full-time employees! We run an efficient organization, using only 4 cents of every dollar for administration. 96 cents of every dollar contributed goes towards food distribution.
