Collect Funds and Food for Community Food Share

By hosting a fund and food drive, you not only help get more food into the homes of our neighbors — you also raise awareness about local hunger.

One in ten of our neighbors in Boulder and Broomfield Counties suffer from food insecurity. They need your help. Community-sponsored fundraisers and food drives are essential to our day-to-day operations.

Host a fund and food drive today to fight hunger in your community.

Make Your Fund and Food Drive Virtual and Raise More

Raise more for Community Food Share without the extra effort traditional food drives require. Although we deeply appreciate every item of food donated, raising funds allows us the ability to purchase food items that are more difficult to come by through physical donations. Thanks to our local and national partners we can stretch every dollar donated to provide $5 worth of groceries to our hungry neighbors in need. This allows those we support access to nutritionrich options by ensuring at least 70% of the food we provide is either fresh produce or high-protein items like dairy, meat, and peanut butter. 

$1 raised = $5 of groceries
