BROOMFIELD, Colo. — Eldorado raised 9,247-pounds of food for the Boulder and Broomfield Counties Food Share program for Thanksgiving, resulting in more than 9,200 meals for hungry Coloradans that will carry through the holiday season.
According to the company, an estimated one in eight people living in Colorado live in poverty, including 12,000 children.
“This is the most significant charity event in which Eldorado participates,” said Larry Garland, Eldorado founder and CEO. “I take great pride in watching our team work with Community Food Share each year — a little bit really does go a long way towards making a difference in the lives of Colorado families and it's gratifying to know our people have helped put food on the table for so many.”
Community Food Share, the food bank for Boulder and Broomfield Counties, has been providing service to the community since 1981 and has distributed more than 5 million meals. For more information about Community Food Share, visit CommunityFoodShare.org.
