    About Serving Up Hope

    The SUH Luncheon began in 1994 as Network for the Needy. It started when hospitality organizations decided to work together toward the common goal of ending hunger in our community. Almost everything is donated and 100% of the proceeds benefit Food Bank of the Rockies and its Denver’s Table program. At last year’s SUH luncheon MIC of Colorado donated over $30,000 and over 16,000 meals to the Food Bank of the Rockies.

    About Food Bank of the Rockies

    • Last year, through our direct service programs and partner agencies, we distributed nearly 60 million pounds of food, enough to provide more than 131,000 meals each day to children, seniors and families in need.
    • Today, FBR has extended its reach across Northern Colorado, providing food and supplies to more than 500 hunger-relief programs.
    • Since 1978, FBR has provided more than 567 million meals for people in need.
