As ski areas and restaurants across Colorado were ordered to close, many donated their remaining food to employees and local food banks.

In Summit County, Breckenridge Ski Resort and Keystone Resort donated about 13,000 pounds of perishable food to the Family & Intercultural Resource Center and the Leadville Community Food Bank, including vegetables, fruits, dairy, juices and prepared salads.

On Monday, Vail Resorts CEO Rob Katz also announced he would donate $100,000 each to the Family & Intercultural Resource Center and The Summit Foundation.
