Before You Visit

Our mission is to provide food to all in need. One way we do that is through our Fresh Food Share pantries. We operate pantries in Fort Collins and in Loveland, and a series of mobile food pantries throughout the county. At each pantry, we offer meat, bread, dairy products, fresh fruits and vegetables, and non-perishable food items at no charge to our clients. It’s more like visiting a grocery store than you might imagine!
