Thousands of people in Boulder rely on the Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA) to meet their needs for nutritious food.

Right now, the EFAA is experiencing an extreme shortage of food amidst supply chain shortages; food deliveries are being pushed back at least a month. The EFAA reports a higher weekly visitation to the food bank compared to the worst of the pandemic. 

This will have major consequences for our neighbors who are grappling with food insecurity.

The EFAA is calling on our community to take action to ensure that local families continue to have access to critical food assistance.

Here’s how you can help:

Donate food. EFAA accepts packaged goods up to one year past expiration. Perishable food items should be in good condition with little to no bruising or damage. EFAA also accepts toiletries and household products. Drop off food at 1575 Yarmouth Ave in North Boulder Monday-Friday, 8:30-11:30am. 

Host a food drive. Organize a food drive with your school, workplace, faith community or neighborhood.
