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.
While Helping Hands of Harvest receives much of its food from Walmart, Target and King Soopers, Food Bank of the Rockies also supplies food for the food bank. Our hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. If you have any questions, please contact the church office at 303-646-3699.
Due to the caution concerning the Corona Virus, we will be implementing a “drive-through” program until the crisis has passed. Beginning March 20th, please call 720-879-3214 to place your order, and it will be delivered to your vehicle. We know our specific merchandise changes all the time, but the list below will give you a good place to start. When you arrive at the food bank or are close, call and let us know the items you need that day and what vehicle you are in. If you don’t have a cell phone, you may come to the door, but no one will be allowed inside.
Our volunteers will be following these procedures: 1. They will not come to volunteer if they have symptoms of cold or flu, or have been exposed to someone that possibly has the virus. 2. They will wear gloves while they are in the food bank. 3. They will clean all surfaces with disinfectant before opening, and frequently during open hours. This situation is new to all of us, but we will keep working to serve you well.
