Rocky Ford Food Share Project
The Rocky Ford Food Share Project is a community resource fighting hunger. We offer FREE food to people who need it regardless of their income or immigration status.
There are many food assistance resources for low-income families but many more families fall in a gap we refer to as the ‘working poor’; they earn too much to get SNAP (formerly food stamps), but a major car repair, medical bill, or reduced work hours (like right now with the COVID-19 pandemic) can mean a choice of paying bills or eating. And immigrant or undocumented families are often ineligible for some assistance.
We believe that no family in our community should have to wonder where their next meal might come from and we're doing our part to connect families with the food they need. The project is being implemented by the Small Town Project.
How does it work? Only with the help of amazing donors, many volunteers, and caring communities. Are you interested in volunteering? Sign up to Volunteer.
