Feeding Families

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


EFAA takes pride in providing highly nutritious and diverse food items for our clients. Our food pantry is always in need of eggs and culturally diverse food items, like masa flour and tamale husks. Our most needed items include:

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

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, such as toilet paper, hair products, household cleaning products, laundry detergent, diapers and toothpaste.
