GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) -- Western Slope Food Bank of the Rockies and Canyon View Vineyard Church hosted a 'Food Bonanza' Monday in Orchard Mesa to help in the fight against hunger.

The food bank helps the more than 20,000 people in Mesa County who don't always know where their next meal is coming from. The event focused on getting non-perishable food items into the hands of those who need it.

"We realize someone that is on a fixed income may not feel comfortable that perish quickly for fear they may not be used in time," said Starlene Collins of Western Slope Food Bank of the Rockies. "It's a great feeling of satisfaction to know you are helping someone in need."

Western Slope Food Bank of the Rockies is hoping to do Food Bonanza's monthly.

They're also in need of donations and volunteers. If you are in need of help or want to help, click here.
