FIRC Community Food Markets
Our free, fresh food markets are available for everyone in our community. We provide safe and friendly drive or walk-through services. By utilizing the markets, a family of 3 can save up to $700 a month and then apply those savings to health care or housing costs. Our markets offer fresh produce, eggs, dairy, and meat from local producers in addition to non-perishable foods.
Masks are required to access our food markets. Thank you for keeping our staff, volunteers and community healthy!

We are accepting donations!
Donate to Thrift and Treasure:
We are back and accepting limited donations of clothing and shoes! Please donate in the back of Breckenridge Thrift and Treasure.
Donations accepted: Wednesdays and Fridays from 11 am to 3 pm.
Due to limited staff, we’d really appreciate everyone’s help in donating gently loved items. Receiving items in good condition that you would give to a friend, saves us time sorting that we can put in towards keeping Thrift and Treasure operational.
No donations will be accepted at any other FIRC location.
Other Donation Opportunities in Summit: Other great organizations in the county may benefit from offerings that are in good shape, like Resaddled Thrift Store (please call 970-409-2565 before donating, and please note that they check items before accepting), Summit County Habitat for Humanity Restore, and For Pet’s Sake in Breckenridge. Please keep in mind that many items may be repurposed, recycled, or need to go to SCRAP – Visit High Country Conservation Center for more information.
We appreciate the support we receive from the community. Thank you for your patience and kindness.
