Since launching on May 20, the Aurora Mobile Food Pantry has
provided food to more than 10,000 community members, totaling 140,000
pounds of food, or 150,000 meals. The pantry continues every week through
Aug. 26 at various locations throughout the city. This Mobile Food Pantry
program is part of the city’s continuous efforts to provide needed services
to the community in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
July events will take place every Thursday at Overland High
School, 12400 E. Jewell Ave. Beginning in August, distribution will move to
every Wednesday at Town Center at Aurora, 14200 E. Alameda Ave (enter from
Alameda Ave. and S. Crystal St.). Distribution will begin at 10 a.m. each
day until all food has been distributed.
Food items vary by week but have included: ready to eat
meals, canned and boxed goods, grains, fresh produce and dairy, juice, and
protein such as eggs, fish, and chicken. On average, the food provided to
each household is enough to feed a family of four for five days.
Aurora Interfaith Community Services, in partnership with
Food Bank of the Rockies and We Don’t Waste, will provide food for July
events with the goal of serving 2,000 community members each week. Aurora
Animal Services and Colorado Pet Pantry also distribute pet food and
supplies on a weekly basis. To date, more than 11,000 pounds of pet food
have been distributed via the Mobile Food Pantry.
For July, the Mobile Food Pantry will also include diapers
and other baby items from WeeCycle, as well as books and at-home activities
for children provided by Aurora Public Libraries.
All Aurora households are eligible, and emergency food kits
are also available for those experiencing homelessness.
If you are driving to the mobile food pantry, remain in your
car and wait your turn in line; do not park and leave your vehicle. If you
are walking, please remember to practice social distancing while waiting
your turn and wear a face covering.
