COLORADO SPRINGS — Care and Share aims to help more than 1,000 families in Colorado Springs and Pueblo stock up on food ahead of the holiday season.
While they're doing this, the organization is also rescuing food that is not being sent over seas due to tariffs and trade mitigation.
Organizers at Saturday's event in Colorado Springs said they expected to help between 700 and 800 people at the event.
"It seems like everybody has heard our call this week and knows that this food is available to them," said Care and Share COO, Shannon Brice.
Because the food comes from the USDA, those who want it must meet income requirement based on the number of people in their household.
Another mobile food pantry is scheduled for next Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. at both Care and Share locations.
