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

· Community Food Share ? Boulder & Longmont
· Food Bank for Larimer County ? Ft. Collins
· Food Bank of the Rockies ? Denver & Grand Junction
· Weld Food Bank ? Greeley
Feeding Colorado's purpose is to coordinate and enhance food resources among the state's food banks; provide administration and distribution of USDA commodities, including CSFP, TEFAP and the School Lunch Program for the state of Colorado; 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.
