City Market, Feeding America, and Montrose County team up to fight influenza and hunger


Montrose, CO – October 10, 2017.  City Market announced today that it will be partnering with Montrose County, Montrose Memorial Hospital, and the City of Montrose to donate and administer 1,000 flu shots to county residents on October 18th from 3-7pm.

In collaboration with Montrose County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Management team and the county’s Health and Human Services, City Market Pharmacists will administer flu vaccines at a drive-through clinics at River Bottom Park and the Montrose Pavilion at no cost to participants.   

“City Market is a major player here in both Montrose and our surrounding communities. We appreciate City Market’s contribution to the health and wellbeing of our community members as we work to combat the spread of the flu virus this season,” said Teri Watkins, Montrose County Interim Emergency Manager. 

“As the most accessible health care provider, our pharmacists are in an excellent position to provide immunization to keep Coloradans healthy this flu season.  We are excited to partner with Montrose County to increase access to the flu shot, as well as, give back through our One Shot, One Meal campaign with Feeding America” Kim Ward, City Market Pharmacy Clinical Sales Manager.

“The City of Montrose is excited to partner with other leading community organizations on the flu vaccination clinic because it is a perfect way to show that different groups can come together for a greater good,” said Bill Bell, Manager of the City of Montrose.

As an emergency exercise, the vaccination clinic is an excellent opportunity to test the community’s readiness in the event of a pandemic.  Vaccinations will be provided to individuals 7 years old and up following a pharmacist’s review of consent forms.  Consent forms may be picked up in advance at either City Market location or county offices.  Vaccinations will be administered on a first come, first served basis.  More information can be found at


One Shot, One Meal

City Market will donate one meal through Feeding America for every flu shot administered.  “City Market is committed to helping people live healthier lives and we’re excited to continue this initiative for the second year,” said Colleen Lindholz, Kroger’s president of pharmacy and The Little Clinic. “When you receive the flu shot this season at any of the Kroger family of pharmacies or The Little Clinic locations, you will help protect your health and provide a meal for a neighbor struggling with hunger. Kroger donated 330 million meals in 2016, and last year’s campaign helped us achieve this milestone. We know that meals matter because nutrition is a key aspect of building healthier communities.”
