Wednesday, March 8, 2023: CLOSED for TEFAP food delivery
Empowering our community by providing
the tools to lift people from poverty.
Community Table is a Colorado nonprofit 501(c)(3) formed in 1982 by five church congregations to serve the needy and vulnerable in our community. From the beginning, Community Table has worked with local governments, churches, schools, civic organizations, businesses and private citizens to ensure that the residents of Arvada and neighboring communities 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 our hungry and struggling neighbors.
We offer programs in two essential areas:
Hunger Relief and Self-Sufficiency
Give the Gift of Your Time
Volunteer opportunities abound, from sorting or picking up donations to data entry and administrative support.

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:
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 four decades. At Community Table, putting food on the table is only the beginning. Now with expanded services to encourage self-sufficiency, Community Table’s Human Services program supports clients through education and linkage with the rich community resources available to them.
- 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.
Although providing food is still our core, our support for those in need extends far beyond. In 2014, we added a ‘hand up’ by adding programs and resources struggling families need to lift themselves out of poverty, including emergency financial assistance for rent and utilities, public benefits application assistance, client computer room and more. In 2019, we began hosting showers for people experiencing homelessness, and we opened an onsite health clinic for underinsured and uninsured adults. Our support for those in need continues to grow. We now offer laundry and dental services and even cooking programs for those on a budget. With your continued support, we know we can do even more to help people in need.
