Metro Caring is Denver's leading hunger-relief program, distributing approximately 2,000,000 pounds of nutritious food to hungry families and individuals while also providing education and tools to help them improve their health and self-sufficiency. Situated in the heart of Denver, Metro Caring offers its participants a holistic approach to hunger relief, through programming focused on Healthy Foods Access, Nutrition and Gardening Education, Self-Sufficiency, and Community Health Services. Last year, Metro Caring served households from 113 Colorado zip codes with the help of a small staff and more than 1,000 volunteers.
This is an exciting time for Metro Caring, as we transition to the new Hunger Relief Center, a 16,000-square-foot facility that will allow expanded programming and increased capacity. We encourage you to learn more about our programs, explore volunteer opportunities, or support our important hunger-relief efforts by donating food or funds.
The mission of Metro Caring is to provide nutritious food to hungry families and individuals while promoting self-sufficiency.
