Donate Food

Last year, EFAA provided over $1 million worth of food to families, seniors and people with disabilities. EFAA’s food bank relies on thousands of individual supporters and receives food from about 100 food drives annually from schools, businesses, service organizations and the faith community.

Our Shopping List

EFAA takes pride in providing highly nutritious and diverse food items for our participants. Our food bank is always in need of high protein items and culturally diverse food, like masa flour and tamale husks.

Visit our shopping list here for our most up to date food needs.

Or shop online using EFAA’s Amazon Wishlist!

We accept packaged goods that are up to one-year past expiration. Perishables food items should be in good condition with little to no bruising or damage. We also accept toiletries and household products.

For information on retail/wholesale donations or donations in large quantities, please contact Walter O’Toole, Food Bank Manager, at 303.951.7667 or at

EFAA receives a portion of its food through TEFAP. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
