Our deepest thanks goes to our partners for their generosity
Food Bank of the Rockies
Food Bank of the Rockies provides food and necessities to people in need through signature programs and by teaming up with hundreds of Hunger Relief Partners to serve communities across Colorado and Wyoming. They believe that for a community to thrive, every member must have the resources they need to flourish, and we strive to provide equitable access to proper nourishment for all.
Food Connect Colorado is a partner agency with FBR, and we receive most of our food from them free of charge.
PROJECT OUR TOWN
Project Our Town is a non-profit organization that empowers people to help others. Through both on-going opportunities and their annual 3-day Weekend of Action they create opportunities for volunteers to participate in meaningful, impactful projects that serve the community.
Project Our Town has provided us with dry soup kits (beans and seasonings), which we have distributed at our food giveaways.
Sharing Our Blessings
Sharing Our Blessings is a new food pantry in Aurora. Under a Food Bank of the Rockies program, we are sponsoring them, enabling them to get food at FBR while waiting for their 501(c)3 approval.
WeeCycle is a nonprofit whose mission is to recycle essential baby gear and match it to Colorado families in need. Recycling and reusing baby gear and clothing preserves the environment for future generations by keeping these items out of landfills.
WeeCycle brings diapers, baby food and other necessities to our drive-up food giveaway at Del Mar Park and distributes them.
Ready to Work Aurora
Ready to Work provides adults experiencing homelessness a unique opportunity to rebuild their lives through work. Their holistic approach combines three elements – paid work in a Ready to Work social enterprise, dormitory housing at Ready to Work House, and case management support. Ready to Work is the first stepping stone to self-sufficiency. After one year, trainees graduate to mainstream jobs and permanent housing.
Food Connect Colorado shares food resources and donations with Ready to Work Aurora.
