Local Food Resources For Families in Need Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

The shuttering of businesses or changing hours of operation has not just affected the business owner, but also all those whose livelihoods have been adversely affected by COVID-19 measures. Many people are struggling to feed their families with changes to their monthly income. To provide information to those here in Littleton who are in need, we have included some resources below.  If you are in a position to donate please contact your local resource to see how you can donate or volunteer.

Hunger Free Colorado – Has an interactive map to connect Coloradans to food resources, where you can input your address and what resources you are looking for and it lists what is available in your area.

Integrated Family Community Services (IFCS) – Clients can contact them via phone at 303-789-0501 to make an appointment for food services. They are open regular hours; however, they are unable to accommodate walk-in clients at this time. Food will be distributed using a drive-through service where Food Market staff will send a prepared box of food to the client via a conveyor belt out to the parking lot. IFCS wants to ensure appropriate distancing for the safety of the community; dramatically eliminating the number of individuals and time spent in the building. Case Managers will administer financial assistance programs remotely, submitting paperwork on-line or via fax.

Food Bank of The Rockies – Since 1978, FBR has provided more than 567 million meals for people in need. Last year, through direct service programs and partner agencies they distributed nearly 60 million pounds of food, enough to provide more than 131,000 meals each day to children, seniors and families in need. FBR is a member of Feeding America.

Denver Metro Emergency Food Network (delivers within a 15mi radius of Denver) The Denver Emergency Food Network delivers free, prepared meals to homebound families and elderly individuals in need during the COVID-19 crisis.
