Where we've been Where we're going
  • Mariah, Pueblo

    We met Yolanda and her daughter at a recent Mobile Food Pantry distribution. “My daughter, Mariah, loves the cantaloupes because they are sweet and juicy," she told us. It was the first time the mom of three stopped by one of our drive-thru distributions.

  • Mary, Colorado Springs

    Mary is a proud grandma to four grandkids. After retiring from her career as a music teacher, she started taking care of them often. When the COVID-19 outbreak hit, her grandchildren stayed inside with her more than usual, which meant more meals.

  • Xaiver, Colorado Springs

    When our Mobile Market stopped by Xaiver’s neighborhood, the seven-year old happily helped his mom carry a bag of food because it had one of his favorite meals in it — pizza. “I love pizza because of the cheese and the crust,” he told us. “Food makes me feel happy because it gives me more energy.”

  • Beau, Colorado Springs, CO

    Beau, a 4th grader at Queen Palmer Elementary, knows that it’s hard to focus or have energy when he’s hungry. “My tummy speaks to me and says, ‘feed me, feed me, feed me,’ and it never stops and it’s annoying,” he told us.

    Care and Share had the pleasure of meeting two-year-old Deyarira and her older brother at one of our Mobile Food Pantry distributions. While they found a green patch of grass to sit on and enjoy their free lunch, their aunt, Alvina, picked out fresh produce to take home.
