Food Event

In collaboration with The Colorado COVID-19 Emergency Hunger Relief Fund, Huerfano RE-1 will be handing out fresh fruits, vegetables and other food items over the next several weeks for families and residents of our community. Our first event will take place at Peakview and Gardner locations Thursday June 4th starting at 11 am to 12 noon ( 1 box per household while supplies remain). This will be a drive up process similar to the school sack lunch pick up. For Walsenburg, we will have signs guiding traffic around the back of John Mall High School, through the alley between John Mall and Peakview. For Gardner, the time is the same 11am – 12pm, and will distribute from the parking lot of the school. Please do not arrive or line up before 10:45 am.

We ask for your help by returning any boxes and empty egg cartons we hand out so that we can reuse them for making future food boxes. Please email Tara Burke at if you need additional details.
