Community Food Share in Colorado is a Feeding America food bank, providing direct support to families, seniors, and other individuals who struggle with hunger in the Boulder and Broomfield Counties in Colorado. The food bank collects, stores, and distributes food to feed families, provides emergency food and nutrition assistance through The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP), dispatches mobile pantries to needy neighborhoods and locations, provides emergency food in a crisis, and supports our elder community with a lifeline to nutrition for low income seniors in the community.
It is an honor to volunteer with those organizations who serve to promote justice and seek change through giving, public awareness, and the belief that it is imperative to be informed, be prepared, and be involved!
