Free, appointment-only distribution served 445 residents Friday
The community center, which partners with Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado and Mobilize US, was unable to operate its food distribution in March due to COVID-19. By moving to an appointment-only distribution, it is continuing to safely serve residents. The monthly mobile food pantry is offered on the fourth Friday of every month in an effort to provide residents with fresh meat, fruits and vegetables at a time when these items are needed most.
Deerfield will also facilitate an every-other-week distribution through Colorado Springs Food Rescue by appointment only. In 2019, Deerfield distributed nearly 100,000 pounds of food to more than 9,000 residents.
