Food insecurity among families, seniors, and children exists right where we live, in Commerce City, Thornton, 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 serve inside and outside of the County, because we are here to help without exclusion!
Adams County Food Bank is the largest organization in Adams County working to alleviate hunger and its companion problems: chronic undernutrition, heart disease, and obesity. By partnering with community organizations and distributing food directly into the hands of those in need, we’re able to make thousands of nutritious food distributions each week and every month.
Our food distribution responds to critical need by providing all people with a generous weekly supply of a variety of foods.
Helping people – Household visits overall in 2020: 35,471
