About Community Food Share

Community Food Share provides fresh nutritious food to those in need with a special emphasis on children, seniors, and other vulnerable members of our community. Approximately 45 local human service agencies rely on us for nutritious food to pass on to their clients. We continually collaborate with these partner organizations to find new ways to address the underlying causes of hunger.

When Community Food Share was founded in the early 1980s, food banks were still a relativity new concept across the United States and most were located in large metropolitan areas. However, with its smaller size, Community Food Share has been able to be more innovative in creating new programs to solve the issue of hunger in our community. This innovative spirit, combined with a budget of over $2.5 million in monetary contributions, $14 million in donated food, and 4,200 volunteers, has positioned CFS as a leader in our community’s effort to end hunger in Boulder and Broomfield Counties.
