Empowering our community by providing
the tools to lift people from poverty.

Community Table is a Colorado nonprofit 501 c (3) corporation formed in 1982 by five church congregations to serve the needy and vulnerable in our community. From the beginning Community Table has worked with city government, churches, schools, civic organizations, businesses and private citizens to ensure that the residents of Arvada and neighboring communities in Northern Jefferson County would have a place to go for emergency food.

Our goal is to secure the resources (food, financial, physical, and volunteers) necessary to provide programs to help meet the nutritional and self-sufficiency needs of qualifying community members.

We offer programs in two essential areas:

Hunger Relief and Self-Sufficiency


Real World Effects

Community Table produces a significant impact in the quality of life in our community, not only by addressing hunger, but also by building community and improving the overall economic standards in its service area.

Community Table cannot accept volunteers under age 13 unless accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian. Children under the age of 8 may not volunteer at all.

We understand everyone is busy. As an alternative to volunteering, we of course welcome your financial support at any level.


About Community Table

The Mission of Community Table: A community in which people have access to food and resources to foster self-sufficiency.

We are proud to be:

Through various Community Table programs we strive to improve the quality of life for hungry families and children in our community. It is through unwavering support of the community that we have been able to provide food to those in need for more than three decades – a legacy which Community Table strives to continue. At Community Table, putting food on the table is only the beginning. Now with expanded services to encourage self-sufficiency, Community Table’s Bridges to Opportunity program supports clients through education and linkage with the rich community resources available to them. Our generous and hardworking volunteers, supporters, Board of Directors, and staff take pride in being an essential strand in the fabric of our community.

We will empower our community by providing the tools to lift people from poverty.
  • We are compassionate in all our relationships.
  • We honor and respect the dignity of our clients.
  • We demonstrate integrity in all matters.
  • We are efficient stewards of all resources.
  • We value innovation for continual improvement.
  • We provide exemplary service to the community.

Founded in 1982 by five church congregations as Arvada Community Food Bank, Community Table quickly gained support of city and county governments, businesses, civic groups, and other human service providers.

Community Table has always been volunteer-centric, growing from a few friends actively distributing food, to a volunteer force nearing 300 people and providing tens of thousands of hours of service annually. Annual community food donations have grown to 1.4 million lbs. Community Table is a true community organization.

Community Table believes it can produce a significant impact in the quality of life in our community, not only by addressing hunger, but also by assisting our clients to access the rich array of resources available to to support them, and by bringing others to the table to address food insecurity in Northern Jefferson County. Community Table is proud to provide basic food resources as well as to connect our clients to resources to enhance self-sufficiency.
