We are a food pantry off of the East Colfax Corridor. We serve the homeless community, children and families, veterans, refugee's, LGBTQ, undocumented and anyone needing assistance. We serve 60+ individuals a week in our drop in program and 15 families that attend our aftercare programming. Our goal is to provide as much fresh food and nutrition to all that we serve. We only require our guests to sign in to the program, they do not have to provide income or any other documents, we help everyone. We are always looking for more cultural food items to become a more diverse program. We can also use toiletries, cleaning supplies hygiene items and anything to support people especially families
Must schedule an appointment before donations are brought to the location. We are a small facility to knowing what is coming is helpful as well.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
