Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Kids Cafe

Kids Cafe is an after-school program where we provide nutritional, prepared meals and snacks for undernourished children. We work with programs such as the Boys and Girls Clubs of Weld County to identify hungry kids who might otherwise not get dinner. Our trained Chef prepares nutritious meals in our commercial kitchen and the hot meals can be transported to the children by our truck drivers.

Population(s) Served

The Backpack Program provides food for children who are at risk for hunger over the weekend. Weld Food Bank works with school counselors and teachers to identify students who would benefit from this program. Volunteers at Weld Food Bank fill the packs with child friendly food including shelf stable milk, juice, a high protein meal, and three or four snacks. We then drop the packs at schools and the children take them home every Friday.

Population(s) Served

Weld Food Bank works to feed children over the summer months when they do not have access to free and reduced school breakfast and lunch. We work with communities throughout Weld County to identify areas where kids in need come together and we bring them a hot lunch. Lunches are prepared in our commercial kitchen and are kept hot and distributed with our trucks.

Population(s) Served

Through our School Food Pantries we partner with schools throughout Weld County who have high numbers of hungry students and we provide them with food to start their own pantry. The food is available not only to provide breakfast if a child comes to school hungry, but also for hungry families to take when they pick a child up from school.

Population(s) Served

We understand that many people are fighting hunger at home, so we provide needy residents of Weld County an Emergency Food Box. The EFB is a box of basic food staples meant to serve a family of four for three days. The box is available to any resident of Weld County who needs help during a difficult time. Once they have been certified, families get a box of shelf stable food items and then get to pick and choose from the perishable foods we have available.

Population(s) Served

The Mobile Food Pantry is a refrigerated beverage truck used to deliver fresh produce, dairy products, meat, bakery, and dry goods directly to hungry people. When the truck arrives at a site, volunteers help set up the food on tables so clients are able to choose the items they need.

Population(s) Served

The Senior Outreach Program is designed to serve seniors over 60 years of age. The program ensures that seniors, who are some of the most vulnerable to hunger, get the basic nutrition necessary for good health. Recipients must be certified by our staff and once approved they can receive food every month. Once seniors are certified they come straight to our warehouse, get the shelf stable food items and then choose from the donated perishable items we have available. We service the contract for all of Northern Colorado which includes Larimer and Boulder Counties.

Population(s) Served

Our goal at Weld Food Bank is to serve all of Weld County. But to do that we need to work closely with partners throughout those 4,000 square miles. Agencies get food directly from the food bank by placing large scale orders. They can either come to the food bank to pick up those orders or we take the food to them in one of our temperature controlled trucks. Our agency partners include food pantries, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, residential treatment centers, and senior and youth programs. They serve all ages and segments of our community. The food provided to those living with hunger often means the difference between feeding their families or going hungry, having hope or living in despair. Together these partnerships are fighting to end hunger in our community.
