Our Hunger-Relief Programs

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 meet 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.

Nourishing Network

The Nourishing Network provides food to more than 120 nonprofit programs to distribute to their clients in need.

Nourishing Network agency partners include food pantries, kitchens, shelters and snack programs that serve low-income populations. Each year, we provide more than $3.8 million in value to our agency partners.

Our Partner Food Pantries

We work with many community partners to distribute food to those in need. Below is list of food pantries in Larimer County. Please note, the organizations listed below operate separately from the Food Bank and have their own eligibility guidelines. View our most updated list here

Please contact them directly for more information on eligibility and hours of operation.

Nutritious Kitchen

Staff and volunteers work in our kitchen each day. It’s thanks to their hard work we’re able to prepare hundreds of thousands of fresh, from scratch, cooked meals for children and seniors in Larimer County every year.

Kids' Cafe

In 2023, our Nutritious Kitchen prepared and served over 100,000 healthy meals and snacks through our Kids’ Cafe program. Kids’ Cafe is composed of a summer and school-year program that provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to children in Larimer County. We give kids snacks and lunches through community partners as well as directly to kids on school-off days.

Other organizations, like the Boys and Girls Club and YMCAs, partner with us to provide snacks most days. On school-off days (in summer and during the school year), we run our Lunch Lab food truck to provide lunches.

Everyday Eats

Nutrition for seniors 60 years and older
We partner 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.

No-Cost Markets

The Fresh Food Share No-Cost Markets 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.

We are different together.

At FBLC we are not all the same. And that is our greatest strength. We draw from our differences of who we are, what we have experienced, and how we think. We cultivate a dynamic and diverse work environment, one that plays a critical role in our ambitious work to end hunger, so we believe in including everyone.

FBLC’s management team is dedicated to this policy with respect to recruitment, hiring, placement, promotion, transfer, training, compensation, benefits, employee activities, access to facilities, and programs and general treatment during employment.
