Safety is our Priority

2020-03-09T15:28:01-06:00

At Community Table, we take the safety of our clients, volunteers and staff seriously and we are taking additional precautions to keep our facility, food and people safe from infectious diseases.

We have added hand sanitizing dispensers in six locations around our facility. We are wiping down shared surfaces and grocery carts after each use. We have posted signs at the entrances and throughout our building asking people who are exhibiting signs of illness to go home and not return until they are no longer sick. We have posted signs in restrooms and other locations asking people to wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

Community Table has always used strict food handling and safety guidelines. Our goal in taking these additional safety precautions is to ensure that our facility remains open and operational so members of our community who are in need will continue to have access to food.

Community Table reserves the right to close its facility if necessary. We are closely monitoring developments and information from the Center for Disease Control and the Colorado and Jefferson County Departments of Public Health and Environment. If it becomes necessary to close our facility, the closure will be listed on our website, telephone messaging and social media.

NOW YOU CAN USE YOUR COLORADO TAX REFUND TO SUPPORT US!

2020-01-27T13:33:09-07:00

Your refund.

Your community.

Your choice.

A new program will let you give some or all of your Colorado income tax refund to help feed the hungry and support the work of Community Table.

In 2019, Colorado returned more than $1 billion in refunds to 1.9 million state taxpayers. In 2020, the new ReFUND CO program gives Coloradans the opportunity to donate all or some of their refund to a local nonprofit like Community Table.

Whether you do your taxes yourself or use a tax preparer, visit the ReFUND CO website at https://refundwhatmatters.org/ for more information and simple instructions for how to make sure your tax refund donation goes to your chosen nonprofit.

On your paper return or tax software, look for the prompt to Donate to a Colorado Nonprofit and use our name–Community Table–and our registration number–20033002744.  For every $10 you donate, we can provide 30 nutritious meals!

We’re an Impact Matters Top Nonprofit!

2019-12-17T11:51:54-07:00

We earned the highest rating from the independent charity rating agency, Impact Matters, in recognition of our social impact and were named one of its top nonprofits. “Based on our analysis of your program’s outcomes and costs, we determined your program is highly cost-effective. We are excited to help you highlight your cost-effectiveness to donors this giving season and beyond,” explained Tamsin Chen, Director of Ratings for Impact Matters.

Impact Matters is a new nonprofit rating agency similar to Guidestar and Charity Navigator. Their mission is to guide donors to high-impact nonprofits by producing ratings of impact. They believe strongly in the nonprofit sector as a way to improve people’s lives and have designed their rating system help the nonprofit sector flourish by rewarding impact.

Impact Matters considers social impact as the change in outcomes caused by a social program relative to cost. Some programs are more effective than others at changing outcomes. This data is not available to most donors, preventing them from pinpointing the impact of their own donation. Through data analysis, ImpactMatters calculates the impact of a nonprofit’s program and issues a rating. Donors can use these ratings to make more informed decisions about their giving.
