BCAP operates Food Pantries in its Boulder and Longmont offices. The Food Pantries provide over 40,000 pounds of food annually (the weight of a greyhound bus or a mobile home) to clients living with HIV. The food is high protein and nutritious, which is especially important for supporting highly active antiretroviral treatments for HIV.
We rely on donations to supplement the food we purchase to stock our Food Pantries. Member churches of the Interfaith AIDS Coalition (IAC) hold monthly food drives. Teams of volunteers grow vegetables in our BCAP garden, shop for groceries, and we have volunteers that deliver groceries to clients who are unable to come in to shop in the Food Pantries.
Please bring your donations directly to BCAP, located at 2118 14th Street, Boulder (between Pine and Spruce), Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5:30 pm.
For more information on the Food Pantry, to organize a food drive benefiting BCAP, or to donate any of the other items or services listed, please contact our Services Coordinator, Cynthia Olmsted, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
