COVID-19 Response & Prevention
In light of the pandemic, hunger has spiked in our local communities, and much of what’s to come remains unknown. At Community Food Share, we know one thing for sure: our food bank remains open, and we will do whatever we can to keep food flowing into the community.
Since the pandemic hit Colorado in March, we have distributed over 1 million pounds of food each month — the highest monthly totals since we opened our doors nearly four decades ago. More than 40,000 of our neighbors relied on our network of food pantries and meal programs even before the pandemic, and these record-breaking numbers are evidence that more and more community members are needing help for the first time. In fact, we expect a 35% increase in demand for food from our food bank for months to come.
