Mile High Magazine 11/13/2022 Community Table

Started out as the Arvada Food Bank in 1982 and now we are known as Community Table.  They distribute food to hungry families and do a number of human service projects to help get them in a better placed.  They have a goal to collect 25,000 pounds of food starting November 14th and ending on December 25th to help offset pandemic-related declines in food donations from individuals and groceries “rescued” from local retailers.  This year’s 25 x 25 food drive kicks off during National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, designed to educate the public, draw attention to the problem of poverty.  In September 2021 they provided food for 1,600 people and in September 2022 they provided food for 3,250 people.  They have a number of locations around Arvada people can drop off donations.  cotable.org
