“Mela’s Pantry”

food pantry

Our food pantry allows clients to have a grocery store experience while shopping for all of their necessary food and hygiene items, even pet food!

You Can Help the Food Pantry Today

Our clients shop for groceries and supplies, even pet food!  We provide three meals a day (plus snacks!) for each family member for at least a week. We also supply household supplies, toiletries, diapers, sanitary supplies for women and seniors.

Additionally, every month we conduct three off-site food banks at low-income senior housing units in Castle Rock.

Simply contact us with your start and end date, as well as the number of buckets you would like and your drop-off location, and we will deliver and pick up the buckets for you.

Where Do We Get Food?

Through our association with Food Bank of the Rockies, we are able to purchase groceries at a significantly discounted price. We also receive donated items from Sprouts, Whole Foods, King Soopers and more!

Interested in Hosting a Food Drive?

Please email Kim Larson  so that we can let you know what items we need.  Often, we need toiletries, diapers or other household items in addition to groceries.

How to Give Financially

For every $1 donated, our food bank can provide groceries for 4 meals.  A donation of just $21 will help us provide a week’s worth of groceries for a family of 4! Use any of our “Donate Now” buttons to be directed to our secure site.
