WE CAN ALLEVIATE HUNGER IN ADAMS COUNTY.
FOOD INSECURITY AMONG FAMILIES AND INDIVIDUALS IS RIGHT WHERE WE LIVE: In Commerce City, in Thornton, in Westminster and across 34 zip codes throughout the County. The impacts of hunger and poor nutrition are serious: children suffer, health is undermined, and prospects for good jobs and life security are limited.
We fund from the community, rather than from county and municipal government sources. Every dollar of funding comes from sources in and around the community and from Business, Corporate, Foundations, and donations from individuals. We can’t alleviate hunger without help. Poverty impacts people of every age, race, religion, and ethnicity and our aim is to reach out with help to those in need of nutritious food.
SO WE’RE ALLEVIATING HUNGER, ZIP CODE BY ZIP CODE, THROUGH THE COUNTY.
Adams County Food Bank is the largest organization in the area working to alleviate hunger and its companion problems: chronic undernutrition, heart disease, and obesity. By partnering with community organizations and by distributing food directly into the hands of those who are needy, ACFB is making 3,000 nutritious food distributions each month. We provide help to mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, and grandparents.
