At Community Food Share in Louisville:

If both the Boulder Valley and St. Vrain Valley School Districts have closed, then Community Food Share will also close for the day. If only one of the two school districts closes, then we will evaluate the need to close on a case-by-case basis. We may be open in those circumstances with a skeleton crew, and limited services. Whenever possible, we will leave a message on our Facebook page and on our voice mail system letting callers know if we are closed. Call (303) 652-3663.

The inclement weather policy varies between locations. Please call the appropriate location for details.
