Time for Spread the Love Food Drive

Posted on February 5, 2024 by

Each February since 2008, Commerce City’s Spread the Love food drive has encouraged residents to donate peanut butter and jelly for local food banks. The period after the holiday season often finds food banks receiving fewer donations at a time when food is in high demand. The economic impacts of the pandemic have led to increased food insecurity and even greater demand for local food banks to assist our neighbors needing a helping hand. 

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are high in protein and easy for kids to make without adult supervision, making Spread the Love an ideal way to donate and help local food banks. The city distributes donations of these and other non-perishable goods to the Adams County Food Bank and the FISH of Commerce City Food Bank at Our Savior Lutheran Church.

Donations of peanut butter and jelly are accepted throughout February at drop-off locations throughout the city: 

Commerce City Civic Center, 7887 E 60th Ave, Commerce City, CO 80022
Municipal Services Center, 8602 Rosemary St, Commerce City, CO 80022
Bison Ridge Recreation Center, 13905 E 112th Ave, Commerce City, CO 80022
Eagle Pointe Recreation Center and Active Adult Center, 6060 Parkway Dr, Commerce City, CO 80022

Cram the Cruiser
The highlight of our annual “Spread the Love” food drive comes as Commerce City police officers encourage residents to fill police vehicles with donations of peanut butter and jelly for local food banks. Officers will be posted in front of both King Soopers stores in Commerce City for the event to chat with shoppers and give kids a look at their patrol vehicles while they collect donations.
