The people and places that make it all possible.

Feeding people can only happen when we all come together with the same mission in mind.  For a complete list of those who see the need and take action, check out our Annual Report

Volunteers give us something precious every day: their time.  They roll up their sleeves and take action in the most tangible ways possible.  They know that every can they sort or bag they pack means they’ve made someone’s life a little brighter.

Meal Sites and Food Pantries are on the front line of hunger relief .  Without them, we’d be unable to accomplish our work.  Soup kitchens, pantries, and shelters provide hope to those in need every day. Whether dishing out lunch to 600 people each day, or serving six families in the church once a month, Partner Agencies make the world a better place.

Foundations and service organizations, like Pikes Peak United Way,  provide us with grant funds to ensure that we can run our programs, buy food, and teach people about nutrition.  Their support also ensures that we can pay employees, put gas in the trucks, and keep the lights on. All essentials in the fight against hunger.

Corporate sponsors support special events, provide grants for programs, hold fundraising activities, and offer matching funds for their employees who also believe in the fight against hunger. These leaders understand that business thrives when we all have the food we need every day and our community is at its best. 

The generosity of individuals makes our work possible all year long.  These investors see a need to take action and to be part of the solution. They know that no matter the size of their gift, it will make a difference to a friend, a senior, a child, or a family facing hunger.

Feeding America, the nation’s leading charity in the fight against hunger, provides us with food, grant opportunities, marketing support, and many other resources through their vast network of connections.  They provide food for more than 37 million low-income people in the United States every year!

Federal programs are essential in getting more food to more people in more places.  This partnership allows us to provide food to children, seniors, and people living in extreme poverty.
