Support Our Annual Spring Fund & Food Drive
Friday, May 1-Sunday, May 3, 2020
Stock the shelves of 40 local food pantries and meal programs during the Hunger Hurts the Whole Community Virtual Fund & Food Drive. In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, this annual, give-back event is needed now more than ever. As hunger takes an even greater toll on our neighbors, help us raise enough funds to provide 32,000 meals through Community Food Share’s programs and partners.
How to Participate
Call (303) 652-3663 8:00 AM-4:30 PM, Mon-Fri, or
Purchase our most-needed items online.
Encourage others to join us, just like you would from the store.
Become a Virtual Store Greeter
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 3:
Host a Facebook fundraiser
Encourage your Facebook friends to help us raise 32,000 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, with all proceeds benefiting our work.
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.
Host a virtual food drive
Register your kid’s virtual food drive, where they can encourage friends and family members to donate jars of peanut butter, cans of tuna, and even cups of applesauce to our food bank.
*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 4.
Donations made to Community Food Share are tax deductible as allowed by law.
