Hunger Hurts Fund & Food Drive

April 30-May 2, 2021

Every spring, Community Food Share hosts the Hunger Hurts the Whole Community Fund & Food Drive. Founded by the Times-Call and Colorado Hometown Weekly, the drive stocks the shelves of more than 40 non-profits in Boulder and Broomfield Counties.

The timing of Hunger Hurts is key: our food bank runs lowest on food from January to April each year, after the year-end giving season concludes. By participating in the drive, you help us fight hunger year-round.

Give Time: Volunteering for Hunger Hurts

Volunteer shifts typically become available in early March — check back then for information on how to sign up. These are the two primary volunteer roles we need to fill:

Store Greeter

Store Greeters encourage shoppers to purchase and donate food items; they are stationed at the entrances of select King Soopers stores. This is a great opportunity for groups and families, as well as individuals!

Food Transporter

Food Transporters load food donations into our trucks and assist with greeting in between. Volunteers must be able to walk up stairs and lift bags of donated food (ages 16+ only).

Two siblings volunteer as store greeters for Community Food Share's Hunger Hurts Fund & Food Drive.
