EFAA’s Food Pantry is Back!

in Food Insecurity

EFAA has officially re-opened our food pantry at 1575 Yarmouth Ave as of Tuesday, November 5th! EFAA’s food pantry was displaced after the building suffered severe water damage from a fire system suppression leak on July 12th. Thanks to our friends at Boulder County Housing and Human Services, the food pantry has been operating with limited food distribution and hours at 1333 Iris Ave since late July.

This move comes just in time for the holiday season, when the need for food assistance is greatest. Last year, EFAA’s food pantry served 1,304 families in the months of November and December alone. EFAA’s food pantry provides special assistance for the holidays, such as frozen turkeys for Thanksgiving and other holiday staples. We are looking to individual donations to help restock the pantry as supplies have gotten low during the repairs.

EFAA’s food pantry will begin accepting food donations on Thursday, November 7th. Right now, the greatest needs are:

  • Canned Chili

    EFAA’s food pantry resumed operations at its main office on Tuesday, November 5th.

  • Canned Tuna
  • Cereal
  • Frozen meat
  • Baby food
  • Condiments
  • Large diapers

The food pantry will begin accepting donations of turkeys for Thanksgiving starting Tuesday, November 12th. For other holiday needs, click here.

Donations can be dropped off at 1575 Yarmouth Ave at the back entrance which can be accessed from the parking lot. Donations are accepted during the following business hours:

  • Monday 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
  • Tuesday 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
  • Wednesday 12:00 pm to 4:30 pm
  • Thursday 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
