The 29th annual Let's Bag Hunger food drive to benefit Community Food Share is coming to a close this week and they need our help! Community Food Share is the central source for food procurement and distribution in Boulder and Broomfield Counties, serving approximately 35,000 low-income people annually. In addition to eliminating hunger in the area by providing food assistance to food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, residential treatment homes, after school programs and emergency food box programs, their goal this year is also to provide food assistance to anyone who was affected by the September floods (please see their website for details).
Urgently needed items this year include:
- Canned meat/tuna
- Canned meals/chili
- Dry cereal
- Pasta/pasta sauce
- Peanut butter
- Canned vegetables
Store-bought non-perishable items (they cannot distribute home-canned products or bulk food) can be dropped off at most King Soopers, Sprouts, Alfalfa's, Lucky's markets in the area, as well as many local businesses. Community Food Share is also in great need of tax-deductible financial donations, as well. As little as $5 makes a difference and serves 20 meals, and as they say, "A little giving goes a long way."
