Our mission is to provide food to all in need through community partnerships and hunger-relief programs. To achieve our mission into the future, we’ve set an ambitious goal to provide 12.2 million meals annually – more than a 60% increase – by 2035. To achieve that goal, we’ve been busy expanding our partnerships and adding new programming, including our regular Mobile Pantries and Kids Cafe food truck (known as The Lunch Lab). We’re also working to expand our capacity and considering new opportunities for distributing food that will increase access to more neighbors needing food assistance both now and into the future.
The Food Bank’s Nourishing Network provides food to more than 100 nonprofit programs to distribute to their clients in need. Nourishing Network member agencies include food pantries, kitchens, shelters and snack programs that serve low-income populations. Each year, we provide more than $1.57 million in value to our agency partners.

The name says it all: Nutritious Kitchen. Staff and volunteers work in our kitchen each day. It’s thanks to their hard work that we’re able to prepare hundreds of thousands of fresh scratch-cooked meals for children and seniors in Larimer County every year.
Through collaboration with community partners, the Child Nutrition programs include Kids Cafe, Kids Link and Backpack. Kids Cafe provides nutritious meals and snacks after school and during the summer at sites throughout Larimer County. In partnership with the Junior League of Fort Collins, Kids Link supplies packaged snacks to qualifying schools to assist children who display signs of hunger. Backpack, in cooperation with Loveland Rotary, McKinney and Longs Peak Rotary, supplies weekend food packs filled with easy to prepare meals and snacks.
The Food Bank partners with Volunteers of America (VOA) to provide nutritious meals to seniors 60 years of age and older. We provide made-from-scratch meals that are distributed to seniors at multiple sites throughout Larimer County. Through our Food Share program, we distribute food provided by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP). As an additional service, we deliver CSFP commodity boxes and fresh fruits to homebound seniors in low-income housing developments.
The Fresh Food Share pantries are our brick-and-mortar locations. Just like a grocery store, clients can choose what they shop for. We offer a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, bread, meat, dairy and shelf-stable items – all at no cost to them.
