The East Colfax Neighborhood Association and Counterpath collaborate on a weekly food bank, open at Counterpath, 7935 East 14th Avenue, every Friday from 3-5pm.
With donations from many individuals and from Metro Caring and We Don't Waste, we have fresh fruit, vegetables, meats, bread, and non-perishables, as well as books and some household items. Everything is available at no cost to anyone from any neighborhood. While this is not currently a full service food bank we hope to help cut back on grocery bills for those in need.
From late spring to late fall produce from the Counterpath community garden and any donations from surrounding home gardens will also be available.
Please be sure to drop off any food you might be able to donate. Non-perishables and other non-refrigerated food donations will be accepted during the East Colfax Neighborhood Association monthly meetings, held every third Tuesday of the month at Counterpath, with donations also accepted there on Fridays from 3-5pm. For drop-offs at other times please email Eastcolfaxneighborhood@gmail.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This initiative joins other emergency food programs in our area. Please help spread the word!
