ANNOUNCING A NEW PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN THE WESTMINSTER KING SOOPERS AND FISH OF WESTMINSTER
The Kroger Co. Family of Stores, the parent company of King Soopers, has a long history of bringing help and hope to the communities we serve. They’re focused on feeding the hungry through more than 80 local Feeding America food bank partners. Much of this work is coordinated by the store Promise Team – an employee group that supports this work on behalf of all employees.
In May, the Westminster King Soopers at 104th and Federal Blvd, entered into a new partnership with FISH of Westminster to serve as a food collection site. Neighbors can fill the shelves of the FISH of Westminster food pantries with donations of nonperishable food items. These items can be left for FISH in the barrel located at the main entrance to the store.
FISH of Westminster was established in 1970. The first food pantry was opened in 1975. FISH of Westminster currently hosts two neighborhood food pantries:
- Westminster Presbyterian Church at 74th and Bradburn; and
- Westminster United Methodist Church at 76th and Lowell.
The food pantries serve all residents of Westminster and people living between 52nd and 144th and I-25 and Sheridan.
