At Community Food Share, we're more than a food bank - we're a neighbor and a friend who's been part of the fabric of Boulder and Broomfield Counties for decades.

We know that ending hunger in our communities requires collaboration. That's why we not only provide food directly to families, seniors, students, and others, we're also a hub - delivering millions of pounds of food a year to local partners to reach people in their communities. Because when we work together, we give more people access to fresh, nutritious food.

You can join the fight against local hunger with gifts of funds. Your gift makes an impact you can see - for every $1 you donate, we can provide 3 meals. You can also give food and time. Find out how by visiting www.communityfoodshare.org.
