GVIN Hosts April Foods Day


Grand Junction, Colorado –

On Saturday, April 23 (9:00am-Noon), Grand Valley Interfaith Network (GVIN) is hosting “April Foods Day,” collecting non-perishable food and other items to fill the pantries of five local charities that feed people throughout the valley. All spiritual communities, non-faith based organizations, and individuals are invited to participate!

GVIN provides customized shopping lists attached to empty grocery bags. Each list is unique to a specific food bank and helps ensure the agency receives their most needed items. The food banks being supported through this event are: Child and Migrant Services, Clifton Christian Church Food Pantry, Community Food Bank, Grand Valley Catholic Outreach, and Grand Valley Peace & Justice. These agencies will be present at the drop-off location to accept your generous donations and provide information about how they serve in the community.

You can pick up grocery bags (with shopping lists) Monday through Thursday (9:00a to 2:00p) at the Grand Valley Peace & Justice resource desk at the Office Suites entrance of The Center for Independence, 740 Gunnison. The P&J contact is Sherry Cole, and she can be reached at programcoordinator@gvpeacejustice.org or 970.261.7695.  The lists are also available for printing on the GVIN website: https://grandvalleyinterfaithnetwork.blogspot.com/p/events-news.html.

Drop-off will be in the east parking lot of the Downtown Vineyard Church (northwest corner of 5th and Grand Ave.) between 9:00am-Noon on Saturday. April 23. Monetary donations may also be made directly to each agency through their website; checks may be mailed to the address of record on the website. Please note April Foods Day with your cash donation.

All are welcome to participate so that all may receive!
