Feeding Families

Last year, EFAA’s food bank provided 637,432 pounds of food to families, seniors and people with disabilities. The EFAA food bank relies on thousands of individual supporters and receives food from about 100 food drives annually from schools, businesses and the faith community. Learn more about organizing your own Community Food Drive or creating a Third-Party event to benefit EFAA or how to   Adopt a Shelf in our food pantry.

A Mobile Food Pantry is also available in South Boulder.
