WHEN: 11/01/2021 - 11/30/2021 WHERE: Summit County, Colorado
We kept up with our collections at Starbucks in Frisco. Most of this food goes to the Community Care Clinic and is available in coolers in the waiting area for anyone who needs it. Some of the food also goes to Father Dyer Church and is distributed along with the Sunday evening community dinner. And some goes to the Women's Shelter at Summit Advocates. We estimate about 800 pounds of food waste donated and distributed. Two of our Starbucks location in the county are only open for drive through or only open limited hours because of staffing shortages. One was closed for a week, but continued getting some of its deliveries, so, we had cases of food to distribute. That went to Father Dyer Church, Family and Intercultural Resource Center and Smart Bellies. We are setting up meetings with more social service organizations and working with our colleagues in the Summit Food Response Team to make sure that expanding into more collections matches well with the needs of our community. We have secured a URL and a year of web support at SquareSpace and are working to bring our website online and build a social media presence.
