The Jubilee Garden partners with a number of local food banks.
Harvest of Hope Pantry in Boulder was formed in 2012 through the efforts of parishioners at St. Thomas Aquinas and Sacred Heart of Jesus churches. Staff and volunteers there offer groceries to those with kitchens in the mornings and to those without kitchens in the afternoons on weekdays, and also provide a pleasant sitting room where clients can find refreshments and take a relaxing break.
Sister Carmen Community Center is located in Lafayette and serves primarily residents in the eastern part of the county. It offers a comprehensive range of services from case management for those who are making efforts to get themselves and their families on a more stable financial footing to yoga classes to a thrift store which accepts donations of clothing in good condition and most usable household items. The center was founded by Sisters of Charity many years ago and now operates as a non-profit agency overseen by a board of directors.
Community Food Share (CFS) specializes in meeting the needs of the hungry in Boulder and Broomfield Counties and takes in and distributes more food than any of the other food banks here. They are located in a remodeled warehouse facility in the Colorado Tech Center industrial park in Louisville. On Mondays through Wednesdays they are open for shoppers from area non-profit agencies. On Wednesdays through Fridays participants in the Feeding Families program come and get groceries at CFS.
Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA) is a counterpart to Sister Carmen which serves primarily residents of the city of Boulder and nearby unincorporated areas. They own some residential units which are made available to clients with emergency housing needs and their food pantry in the Holiday neighborhood in north Boulder is open weekdays with extended hours on Thursday evenings.
