We have one belief:
No one should go hungry.

Every day, we provide food to our partner agencies across Southern Colorado to serve our neighbors in need because well-fed communities are better for us all.

Our vision is a hunger-free Southern Colorado.

At Care and Share Food Bank, our core purpose is to bridge the gap between hunger and abundance. Our mission is to provide food, partnering opportunities, and education to fight hunger and food insecurity in Southern Colorado. Our vision is a hunger-free Southern Colorado.

  • 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.

  • Deyarira, Pueblo, CO

    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.

When JaLisa saw the bags of oranges our Mobile Food Pantry volunteers put into her grandma's car, her face lit up. We're working hard to make sure children don't have to worry about where their next meal is coming from, so they can focus on just being kids.

You can help us provide nutritious food to families who need our help now more than ever: careandshare.org/get-involved.

VOLUNTEER HIGHLIGHT | Larry has been retired for several years but that doesn't stop him from lending a helping hand every week. He has been volunteering with us for six years. “My favorite thing about Care and Share is knowing that you’re making a difference in someone’s life,” he said. “It’s special to be part of that, and I think it’s really meaningful to know that you’re helping an individual or a family have secure access to food.”
