Epic Mountain Express to host annual Fill the Van food drive

The annual Fill the Van food drive by Epic Mountain Express returns to Summit County. From 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 20, people can drop off nonperishable food items outside of City Market, 300 Dillon Ridge Road, Dillon.

According to Epic Mountain Express, a recent statewide survey conducted by the nonprofit Hunger Free Colorado showed that one in three individuals is food insecure. Donations from the Saturday event will go toward the Family & Intercultural Resource Center.

Volunteers will be in front of the store with shopping lists to hand out and collect the items as people exit. Examples of needed items include canned beans, rice, pasta, dried fruits, powdered milk, diapers and more.
