Hunger Hurts the Whole Community Virtual Fund & Food Drive

The 34th annual Hunger Hurts the Whole Community Virtual Fund & Food Drive is taking place Friday, April 29 through Sunday, May 1. Founded by the Times-Call and Colorado Hometown Weekly, the drive stocks the shelves of more than 40 local food pantries and meal programs  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.

To protect the health of our community, we will be holding the event virtually this year — meaning our volunteers won’t be stationed at local King Soopers locations to collect donations. However, there are still plenty of ways to safely gather your friends and family to help end hunger in our neighborhood for good!

Host a Your Own Food Drive

Register to host a virtual food drive or learn how to start your own in-person fund and 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!

Host a Facebook fundraiser

Encourage your Facebook friends to help us raise 70,000 meals for Boulder and Broomfield Counties. 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.”
