In this season of giving, Native Roots collected more than 1,800 pounds of food to benefit Bienvenidos Food Bank in northwest Denver. Food was collected at various Native Roots locations around the Denver area, including the Edgewater location, during the month of November.
“Hunger is a devastating world issue that needs support from organizations of all sizes and at all levels of a community,” said Native Roots Dispensary CEO, Ryan Brown. “We are thrilled to partner with Bienvenidos Food Bank in Denver doing our part by donating the food we’ve collected over the last month at our nearby locations with the help of staff, customers and patients who share our commitment to help those in need.”
Bienvenidos Food Pantry has been serving families for more than 41 years at their location at 38th and Pecos.
“We are grateful to Native Roots for their support and generosity,” said Greg Pratt, Bienvenidos Executive Director. “Although our Northwest Denver neighborhood continues to grow and change, we still have a significant number of families who depend on us for food each week. We greatly appreciate the food donations – especially this time of year.”
