Staff and students lined up and smiling after a successful Mobile Food Pantry shiftThe University of Colorado Boulder’s Volunteer Resource Center and Basic Needs Center partners with Community Food Share each semester to host several Mobile Food Pantries to support the needs of our community. 

All are welcome, regardless of campus and personal identity. (Including staff, students, faculty & community members from the Boulder & Broomfield area) Food will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Please remember to dress appropriately for being outside and bring reusable shopping bags to help you carry your food. Attendees will receive up to 30 pounds of food in multiple boxes. Drive-through is not currently being offered for these mobile food pantries. 

If driving, limited parking will be available in the Euclid Parking Garage and a volunteer at the entrance to the parking garage can provide you with a temporary parking passcode.

The Fall semester mobile food pantries will take place on the UMC South Terrace Plaza on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.

The pantries take place weather permitting. Visit the CU Basic Needs Center Mobile Food Pantries page or CU Basic Needs Instagram page on the day of the event if you are unsure about the pantry status.
