Feeding Colorado is an association of the five Feeding America food banks in Colorado.

Feeding Colorado's purpose is to coordinate and enhance food resources among the state's food banks and to support the mission of Feeding America.

The five food banks distribute food to more than 1,500 nonprofit agencies state-wide that provide meals and services to people in need. The diversity of agencies include food pantries, day-care centers, battered women's shelters, soup kitchens, residential treatment centers, senior and youth programs; serving all ages and segments of our community. The food provided to those living in poverty often means the difference between feeding their families or going hungry; having hope or living in despair.

The food banks are 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations. They receive broad community support from individuals, corporations, local governments, faith communities and corporations. Individual volunteerism is key to their success.

 Each Colorado food bank collects surplus food from food processors, farms, distributors, restaurants and supermarkets. Many also conduct community food drives or glean from local gardens.

 Our members are affiliates of Feeding America, the USA's largest domestic hunger-relief organization, which has a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks and food rescue programs. As such, they are monitored and operate in compliance with food industry standards for safe food handling, inventory control, record keeping, sanitation and pest control.


Good News:

As of January 1, 2015, the Colorado Charitable Crop Donation Act is in effect.  The act offers Colorado taxpayers a 25% tax credit for the wholesale value of food they produce and then donate to food banks across Colorado. 

“Colorado farmers and ranchers generously support Feeding Colorado food banks, including Community Food Share.  Passing the Colorado Charitable Crop Donation Act to help our agricultural industry provide additional food for the hungry is a win-win for our entire community,” commented Jim Baldwin, President of Feeding Colorado (the originating sponsor) and CEO of Community Food Share. The Charitable Crop Donation Act will help increase Feeding Colorado's access to more nutritious food sourced locally. People in need will be the direct beneficiaries of this nutritious produce.
