Food bank moves into Grand Junction facility

The Food Bank of the Rockies Western Slope has moved into the new Etkin Family Distribution Center in Grand Junction.

Located at 698 Long Acre Drive, the new facility offers more than 50,000 square feet. At nearly twice the size of the former facility in Palisade, the warehouse and distribution center is expected to enable Food Bank of the Rockies to provide 62 percent more meals annually.

While volunteers and partners are allowed inside, the new facility isn’t yet open to the public. A grand opening will be scheduled in coming months. Food distribution continues through mobile pantries and hunger relief partners.
