Rooster & Moon is hosting a food drive this week, and giving away free drinks!

Rooster & Moon, 955 Bannock Street, has partnered with Denver Urban Ministries -- a local nonprofit that assists impoverished communities -- for a week-long food drive at the coffee shop and pub that starts today. Customers who donate to the effort will receive a free drink of their choice (alcoholic beverages included). But in order to get that drink, you have to trade in a jar of peanut butter.

According to volunteers at Denver Urban Ministries, donations of peanut butter are particularly rare, so the nonprofit decided to begin a campaign focusing on that one food item.

And the donation program -- which runs through Sunday, June 2 -- couldn't have come at a better time: Rooster & Moon is introducing its new summer cocktail menu today.

So bring in a jar of peanut butter, and get a drink to remember this Memorial Day.
