The Fort Collins Eyeopeners Kiwanis Club is dedicated to making an impact in their community. One issue that impacts Frot Collins, Colorado, is hunger. While there are many different food drives the community hosts in the fall season, the Larimer Country Food Bank is always looking for donations and assistance.
The Colorado Feeding Kids Food Packing Event returns in 2018! This year the project will be held Saturday, March 3, 2018 at the Larimer County Food Bank. Full details and sign up sheet are below! A huge thank you to Wallmart for a grant we will be using to pay for the cost of food!
Colorado Feeding Kids is an organization that was started by Ken Bradley. Ken is a Kiwanis member himself so the Rocky Mountain District has a history of working with the organization and making an impact. In 2016 the Fort Collins Eyeopeners hosted Ken and his team and worked with Kiwanis clubs from across Northern Colorado to pack 21,500 meals that were distributed to both the Larimer County Food Bank and the Weld County Food Bank.
In 2017 the event was hosted at the Larimer County Food Back for a second year. Thanks to our sponsors Encompass Medical Partners and the AllState Foundation we were able to pack 24,840 meals
