We unfortunately do not have the capacity to offer a delivery service; however, if you are homebound, the following resources may be helpful to you:

  • Via Mobility is temporarily offering to pick up groceries from Community Food Share’s programs, and deliver them to you at home. Please note that this is limited to residents of Boulder and Broomfield Counties. You do not need to qualify for Via’s services to access this option. You must coordinate this delivery service directly with Via: call (303) 447-2848, and press 0 to speak with their receptionist.
  • Meals on Wheels offers meal delivery. To find the program serving your neighborhood, click here.
  • RTD’s Access-a-Ride is offering grocery pick-up service during the COVID-19 emergency, free of charge to their customers’ homes — including groceries from Community Food Share’s onsite and mobile pantries. For information on Access-a-Ride, visit the website.
  • Carry-Out Caravan by Cultivate offers assistance with grocery ordering, purchasing, and delivering for Boulder County residents, ages 60+ (note: they may expand their service area soon). For details, click here.

Individuals who choose to visit our pantry for indoor, in-person shopping can select which items they would like to take home based on the items we have available that day. For drive-through shopping, we are able to offer very basic customization: participants may opt in or out of some food categories, and we are able to provide some vegan and gluten-free options if they are available.

We unfortunately cannot offer customizations at our mobile pantries or Elder Share sites at the moment; you will receive a box of pre-packed food.

In addition to Community Food Share’s programs, as well as other food pantries and meal programs normally available in our community, each school district is offering free meals to families. Click below for information by district:

We are able to offer very basic customization of food boxes at our Feeding Families onsite food pantry only. Participants are able to opt in or out of food categories, and we are able to provide some vegan and gluten-free options if they are available. Our current offering contains a variety of items (including fresh produce) that your household should be able to consume, including those with dietary restrictions. You can also decline milk and/or meat at the time of pick-up, and if you receive something you cannot use, please pass it along to someone who can.
