Food & Thrift
The high cost of living makes Summit County a difficult place to raise a family. By providing options for healthy and nutritious food and affordable clothing, we help families stretch their budgets.
Self-Service Food and Thrift Navigator
Free Food Market
Our food markets are available for everyone in our community. We provide safe and friendly drive or walk-through services. By utilizing the markets, families can save up to $400 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.

Thrift & Treasure
Address: 340 Fielder Ave., Dillon, CO 80435
Days/Times: Closed. Not accepting donations at this time.
Dillon Thrift and Treasure is temporarily closed and is moving to Breckenridge in September.
The pandemic shifted the needs in our community. During the height of COVID, FIRC converted a large portion of our Silverthorne office into our food market. While there continues to be an increased need for food resources in our community, FIRC would like to reopen our Silverthorne office to clients. In order to do this, we will gradually shift our operations, including our Silverthorne food market and Dillon thrift store. Our food markets will remain operational during these transitions.
We will transition our Silverthorne food operations to our Dillon thrift store location and move the Dillon thrift store to our Breckenridge location at 1745 Airport Road. We plan to open these locations at the beginning of September. We will continue to accept non-perishable food donations, but during the transition we are temporarily not accepting other donations.
FIRC will ensure that our community has access to healthy food and looks forward to serving our clients in person again. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
Clothing vouchers: People in need of clothing for work, winter or any other emergencies can access vouchers by calling our front desk at 970-262-3888.
Thrift Store Donations
NO DONATIONS ACCEPTED CURRENTLY.
Sadly, FIRC cannot currently accept donations of any items at our Dillon Thrift & Treasure location or office locations. FIRC does currently accept donations of non-perishable food items at our food markets.
Since the sale of clothing and items at our thrift store helps fund our programs, it is difficult for FIRC to turn away these donations, but right now we can’t accept them. Since the thrift store is closed, FIRC must pay to remove items that are left at our doors and paying these costs takes away funds for our essential programs, like the food markets.
There are other great organizations in the county who may benefit from donations that are in good shape like: Resaddled Thrift Store, Summit County Habitat for Humanity Restore, For Pet’s Sake in Breckenridge. Please keep in mind many items may be repurposed, recycled or may need to go to SCRAP – Visit High Country Conservation Center for more information.
We appreciate the support we receive from the community and we will let you know when we are open for donations again. Thank you for your patience and kindness.
