Newly renovated the Helping Hands of Harvest Food Bank cooperates with other food pantries in the region to provide food and necessary supplies for the needy in the Elizabeth and Elbert County area. Now that the Harvest Food Bank is officially opened, there are two main programs being employed.
The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) supplies food for families in need according to family size and other verifiable criteria.
The second program is Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), serving senior citizens over the age of 60.
While Helping Hands of Harvest receives much of its food from Walmart and other donations, the Food Bank of the Rockies supplies the food for the Harvest Food Bank. Food bank hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday’s from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. If you have any questions, please contact the church office at 303-646-3699.
