The Candelas and Leyden Rock communities in Arvada helped kick off our spring food drive with a friendly competition. The two neighborhoods donated more than 400 pounds of food to Community Table. Candelas was the winner of the multi-week Compete Against Hunger contest with 288 pounds. Leyden Rock had 124 pounds.
It’s not too late to join the competition against hunger.
Tomorrow, May 11, is our annual postal food drive, Stamp Out Hunger in partnership with the National Association of Letter Carriers.
Donating is easy! Leave your donation of nonperishable food in a bag by your mailbox by 9:00 am. A volunteer or letter carrier will pick it up.
FILL A BAG. FEED A FAMILY.
Help feed your hungry neighbors by supporting Community Table during the National Association of Letter Carriers annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Leave your food donation by your mailbox by 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 11. Our volunteers or your letter carrier will pick it up and deliver it to Community Table. What you give in our community, stays in our community. Our goal is to collect 100,000 pounds of food in one day! Special Thanks to letter carriers in Arvada and Wheat Ridge for their leadership in making this our biggest one day food drive of the year.
Many thanks to the Candelas and Leyden Rock neighborhoods!
Both communities are helping us kick off our annual spring food drive with a little friendly competition. Over the next several weeks we’ll see which neighborhood collects and donates the most food to Community Table. The winner will receive a beautiful trophy and most importantly, bragging rights.
Our spring food drive is one of the most important we do during the year. Typically food donations drop off after the holidays. You can help re-stock our warehouse and make sure we have enough food for the busy summer months when the needs of struggling families are even greater because kids are not receiving free breakfast and lunch at school.
It’s easy to help. Watch your mailbox for information about the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive and your blue donation bag. On Saturday, May 11 place your food donations in the blue bag and put it by your mailbox by 9 a.m. Our volunteers or your letter carrier will pick up your donation. Our goal is to collect 100,000 pounds of food this spring. There are thousands of struggling families who are counting on you.
Beginning Thursday, April 11, our food pantry will be open for shopping from 10:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. All other hours remain the same.

Community Table will close to clients and volunteers during bad weather. We follow the Jefferson County School District closure procedure, so if Jeffco Schools are closed, so are we.
Please check with Jeffco Schools during bad weather, before coming in. Information is listed on their website, on Facebook and on Denver TV Stations. Closing information will also be listed on the Community Table web site front page.
A big THANK YOU to all the employees at Rocky Mountain Metal Container for their aluminum can recycling program and their annual Mile High United Way giving campaign that raised $3,639 for Community Table! The employees also collected personal care products, which we always need and thousands of shopping bags for our Client Choice Pantry. We so appreciate your continued support!
A big thank you to @LuckysMarket for helping to provide meals for those in need! Lucky’s choose us as an Impact Day partner for their new store in Wheat Ridge and donated a percentage of Nov 6 store sales to feed hungry families in the community. Thanks again Lucky’s Market for supporting Community Table and for thinking of those who don’t have enough to eat.
