The Food Bank for Larimer County and our partner agencies are on the front lines of hunger. We hear the stories. We understand the struggles. And we are committed to finding solutions. We want state and federal lawmakers to understand the issues facing the people we serve, and how they can help. Because our voices are stronger together, we coordinate our advocacy and public policy work through Feeding Colorado, the state association of the five Feeding America food banks serving all of Colorado and Wyoming.

Feeding Colorado’s policy agenda is tied to our mission of supporting people experiencing food insecurity and reducing the number of people needing food assistance, driven by information from neighbors who experience hunger, supported with data and analysis; external of partisan politics; focused on the areas in which our involvement will have the most impact, and coordinated with other coalitions and organizations to determine what unique voice we may bring to an issue.
An investment in your local Feeding Colorado food bank is an investment in the well-being of our state. With each gift, we can provide nourishing food for neighbors who need help rebuilding their lives when circumstances make it difficult to make ends meet. Donations made here will benefit all five food banks.
If you’re filing an individual or joint state income tax return, you can fight hunger simply by checking a box! Choose Feeding Colorado from the voluntary contributions checkoff list to ensure that everyone in our state has consistent access to food.
Volunteers are the hearts and hands of our food banks. Across the state, our volunteers contribute hundreds of thousands of hours of time each year to help us provide food to our neighbors in need.
