With the help of our monthly givers, we are able to nourish our neighbors with access to healthy food, offer programs to help individuals thrive and grow the number of families and individuals who are able to enjoy our services.

In our fight against hunger, we often come face to face with a mean irony. Food insecurity and obesity are, in many cases, two sides of the same coin. It’s a tragic fact that children in low-income communities are more likely to be faced with nutrient-poor and high-sodium diets, increasing their risk for health problems. While too many Coloradans don’t have reliable access to fresh fruit and vegetables, they do have access to cheaper foods that are high in corn syrup, sugar, or sodium.
To meet the greatest need of our community – more healthful and well-balanced foods – Metro Caring distributes foods that are not excessively high in sodium or sugar.
If you are interested in donating food to Metro Caring, start with this list on the right! These are the nutritious items that our shoppers have requested in a recent survey. This is just a starting point. Donations of donate other healthy and nutritious items are more than welcome!
Our food donation hours are: Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. ; Tuesdays, 8 a.m. - 7 p.m.
You are welcome to come by the back door to drop off food at any point during those hours.
*Please note- Metro Caring is closed to participants the 1st Wednesday of every month for staff training. If you plan to bring food donations on that day, please call ahead to ensure that someone is here to receive you.
To help nourish our neighbors by providing nutritious food to hungry families and individuals, we encourage you to sponsor a healthy food drive. Whether you host one at work, in your faith community, school, or elsewhere, we are thankful for your contribution to address hunger in Denver!
