FAQs

What percentage of my contribution is used for salaries or administrative overhead?

NONE! 100% of all general contributions are used to purchase food for our program. Food For Thought is a 100% volunteer organization and all administrative costs are underwritten by our generous Board of Directors.

If my organization wanted to create an event or campaign in which Food for Thought Denver would be a beneficiary, what should we do?

Please contact Bob Bell or Jeane Larkins and they will provide you with donation options that work best your organization.

My company is planning to do a food drive for you guys! When and where do we drop off the food?

Unfortunately, doing a food drive for us really doesn’t work for the logistics of the Food for Thought organization since our food stuffs are carefully determined and sourced from one provider (Food Bank of the Rockies). That said, if you have already accumulated the food, please contact Food Bank of the Rockies as they will most likely accept these donations. Please contact Bob Bell or Jeane Larkins and they will provide you with donation options that work best for your organization.
