Hunger Hurts the Whole Community Virtual Food & Fund Drive

Friday, April 30-Sunday, May 2, 2021

Food insecurity in Boulder and Broomfield Counties has increased by 35% because of the pandemic, making the 33rd annual Hunger Hurts the Whole Community Virtual Fund & Food Drive the most important one yet.

This is your opportunity to stock the shelves of more than 40 local food pantries and meal programs ending hunger from the frontline. Join us by making a gift, donating food, or organizing a fund and food drive in your community! With your support, we can raise 75,000 meals to fuel our community’s hunger relief network when it’s needed the most.

Virtual Volunteer Opportunities

Since we can’t station ourselves at King Soopers entrances this year, we’re taking our greeting efforts online. Challenging times call for creative solutions, right? Here are two ways you can help us raise funds and food online through May 2:

Host a Facebook fundraiser

Encourage your Facebook friends to help us raise 75,000 meals for Boulder and Broomfield Counties — just like you would at the store! Facebook fundraisers are easy, secure, and 100% of the funds come directly to our food bank. Visit this page for step-by-step instructions, and click “Fundraisers for Charitable Organizations.” When prompted to select a charity, search for and click “Community Food Share.”

Want to add a little flare? Take a selfie at the front of the store during your next grocery shopping trip, and post it with your fundraiser!

Host a Virtual Food Drive

Register to host a virtual food drive. When you invite your family and friends to support the drive, they’ll be able to add food items to their “cart” and check out. Your supporters can donate jars of peanut butter, cans of tuna, and even boxes of cereal to our food bank, with all proceeds benefiting our work. Need help getting started? Check out these step-by-step instructions!

Get Your Kids Involved

If you typically volunteer for this event with your children, get them involved in the fight against hunger in new ways this year. Whether creating a family donation jar, planting a garden, or finding other fun ways to give back, don’t forget to share a picture of your kiddo(s) on social media, and tag Community Food Share!

Start a donation jar

Have your kids decorate a donation jar, and choose where it goes in the house. Work together to come up with ideas for how to collect donations (like earning gifts by doing extra chores).*

Plant a family garden

Pledge to “grow a row” as part of our Garden Share program: extend your existing garden or plant a new one, and donate fresh produce and herbs to Community Food Share when harvest season arrives.

*For donations to be included in the final Hunger Hurts Fund & Food Drive tally, make sure we receive your gifts online, by phone at (303) 652-3663 (Mondays-Fridays, 8:00 AM-4:30 PM), or by a check in the mail to our food bank (650 S. Taylor Avenue, Louisville, CO, 80027) by end-of-day on Monday, May 3.
