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 Inter-Church ARMS (Arvada Resources for Mind and Spirit) to serve the needy and vulnerable in our community.

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

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 surrounding communities would have a place to go for emergency food.

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.

Volunteer opportunities abound, from sorting or picking up donations to data entry and administrative support.

Download a Volunteer Application and drop it off at the Food Bank. We would like to meet you in person and show you around our operation. 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

Our mission is to provide our neighbors with food and resources to foster self-sufficiency and achieve long term success through innovation, compassion and community support.

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 nearly three decades. It is this legacy which Community Table strives to continue. Now with expanded services to encourage self-sufficiency and providing a “hand up,” 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, 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 approximately 20,000 hours of service. Annual community food donations have grown to exceed 500,000 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 building community and improving the overall economic standards in its service area. Community Table will continue to provide innovative programs to provide food resources to targeted populations in an ever-widening network through Northern Jefferson County Colorado.
