Community Ministry Food Pantry will be open our regular hours to serve those in need in Southwest Denver. Note that emergency food services, including Community Ministry, are exempt from “Stay at Home” mandates. However, we are only doing check-in and delivery outside. Please be kind to us and wear a mask during your visit. Neighbors will receive enough food for their families for a week, but will not be able to go through the pantry to choose their own food as has been our practice. Please be prepared to wait outside the building until your turn. Remember to bring your orange Community Ministry ID card with you to expedite getting served.
The children’s clothing bank is open on the second Thursday of each month from 2p-4p. Distributions will be outside if the weather permits, indoors with restricted numbers if the weather is poor.
Donations of food will be still be gratefully accepted during regular pantry hours. Please use the door in the alley for donations.
Extra (healthy) volunteers are also needed during this time when many of our regular volunteers are unable to help. Sign up on our Volunteer Opportunities page.
Our goal is to help people through this difficult time in a manner that keeps them and our volunteers safe. We beg your understanding for the inconvenience these protocols cause.
Our regular sanitation protocols cover the areas of concern for the transmission of Covid-19, but we have also increased the frequency of our surface area disinfection, and we will be maintaining 6 feet of distance from each other when possible. For the safety of our neighbors, staff and volunteers, we respectfully request that you do not visit if you are experiencing a respiratory illness and especially if you have a fever, cough or shortness of breath. Symptoms of respiratory illness include: nasal congestion, runny nose, sneezing, sore or scratchy throat, painful swallowing, cough, watery eyes, headache, fatigue, or body aches.
We will post updates here as they occur. Thank you for your patience!
