How we feed our neighbors. 

The face of hunger in Southern Colorado is different from the cities to the plains, from the mountains to the valleys. Our approach to feeding our neighbors is as unique as they are. 

Meal Sites and Food Pantries

Places like soup kitchens, pantries, and emergency shelters are the frontline leaders in hunger relief. We provide the food to more than 300 of these partners and they get it to the people who need it. It’s a beautiful thing! Interested in learning if your organization qualifies to receive food from Care and Share?

Children's Nutrition Initiative

Who wants kids to go hungry? Not us and not you! CNI programs—Send Hunger Packing, Healthy Kids Club, Summer Food Service Program, School Pantries, Summer Mobile Pantries, and the Family Pantry Box program—get food to kids and their families so they can learn and grow. It’s just that simple.

Cooking Matters

Eating healthy on a limited budget is a hard thing to do, and many of us don’t know how to do it. Our Cooking Matters program is a six-week course that teaches low-income families how to shop for and create healthy, affordable meals

The Emergency Food Assistance Program

Is a federally funded program that provides food for low-come individuals, families, and seniors. Monthly food distributions are held at participating sites throughout Southern Colorado, serving thousands of our neighbors in need.

Commodity Supplemental Food Program

Is a federally funded program that provides extra food for low-income seniors. Monthly food distributions are held at participating sites throughout Southern Colorado, serving thousands of our neighbors in need.

Zero Waste | GoalZero Recylcing

As an organization that distributes millions of pounds of food each year, we have the capacity to create a huge amount of waste. To mitigate this, we recycle! Cardboard, shrink wrap, and pallets are baled and sold to create an additional resource to acquire more food.
