PROJECTS

MUTUAL AID
WEEKLY DISTRO

Every Tuesday, Mutual Aid volunteers transform a couple of thousand square feet of space into what feels like a farmers market but with free services, including a choice pantry with fresh produce, frozen meats, shelf-stable foods, and grocery rescue. Our new location, the Homeward Bound/United Way Resource Center, is a community-centered, collaborative project right in the heart of downtown Grand Junction, Colorado.

 

The Distro requires around 30 volunteer staff each week. We are always looking for passionate individuals who want to get involved with the Mutual Aid community.
