We believe no one should go hungry.
What happens at a food bank?
We’re glad you asked. As a food bank, Care and Share works to gather and sort food from multiple sources, distributing to our network of 282 partners in 31 counties across Southern Colorado. We make sure nutritious food gets in the hands of everyone who needs it—wherever they are.
We receive donated or low-cost food from suppliers, community partners, and federal programs.
Our dedicated staff and volunteers sort and organize the food we receive.
Partner food pantries
More than 280 soup kitchens, pantries, and emergency shelters help get food to neighbors who need it most.
Mobile markets + pantries
Our mobile markets and food pantries serve communities with limited access to grocery stores and other food resources.
Sunny Side Markets offer a new kind of pantry— where free food is provided in a warm and dignified shopping experience.
Need food now?
Change lives with spare change
At Care and Share Food Bank, we understand that life happens—but hunger shouldn't. Thousands of our neighbors don't know where their next meal will come from. Your donation can be the reason they never have to wonder again.
Full bellies—full hearts
Last year, we gave out more than 12,815 Send Hunger Packing bags.
Our Send Hunger Packing school program provides kids with a bag of food each week to take home to their families. Programs like these—supported by donors like you—mean kids like Xander have the food they need to learn and grow.
Feeding our neighbors
Volunteer your time
Volunteering at our distribution center is easy, fun, and so important in getting food to our neighbors in need.
