Emergency Food Programs are Essential Services

Nutritious Food is essential

Access to nutritious food is fundamental to the health of Coloradans, so grocery stores and hunger relief programs will continue to operate throughout the state.

In an effort to protect public health and contain the impact of COVID-19, Governor Polis issued a statewide Stay-at-Home order today, March 25, 2020, that takes effect tomorrow with the exception of essential services. As an essential service to Southern Colorado, our volunteer shifts and emergency food mobilization efforts will continue.

Care and Share Food Bank’s mission is an essential public service for Southern Colorado because we equip local food pantries, soup kitchens, and other meal programs with food and information.

This allows for the movement and operations of our staff, our food partner agency staff, volunteers, and people accessing emergency food assistance. We will continue to comply with physical distancing orders of at least 6′ in addition to our other proactive sanitation and safety measures to protect volunteers and staff.

We assure you: The entire Care and Share team is committed to providing support for our communities throughout the year and especially during this pandemic.
