Emergency Food Pantry

GPHC's COVID-19 Plan (updated 3.25.20)

Food providers, including food pantries, are considered essential services and are allowed to continue their operations under Denver’s Stay At Home Order.The Emergency Food Pantry will continue food distribution on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10am-1pm. However, we will only be distributing pre-packed bags, commensurate with family size, at the door. The shopping area will be closed. The Weekend Food Program will be suspended while Denver Public Schools are out, but those families are also encouraged to use the pantry. We will continue to accept food donations at our office on Mondays and Wednesdays between 9am and 3pm. Donations can also be dropped at Cake Crumbs. Only employees and regularly scheduled volunteers will be permitted in the office. We currently have all volunteer slots filled but if you are healthy and would like to be added to our on-call list, please send an email to director@greaterparkhill.org. All meetings and events hosted by GPHC or held in our building have been canceled through April 30th, including the monthly community meeting.

Greater Park Hill Community, Inc. operates an emergency food pantry Monday and Wednesday from 10am to 1pm at 2823 Fairfax Street. Our food pantry provides a three-day supply of food to neighbors in need. Clients can visit up to nine times per year (not including our Thanksgiving distribution).

If you would like to receive food assistance please visit our office during normal business hours. Bring a photo ID and a piece of current mail with your Park Hill address on it for all adults in your household, as well as documentation (student ID, birth certificate, letter from a school counselor, etc) for children under 18.

We are a proud partner of Food Bank of the Rockies. We are also registered with Ample Harvest. 

In 2019, the pantry served:

207 Households

614 Individuals

The pantry is supported almost entirely by donations from individuals, businesses, nonprofits, and faith communities in Greater Park Hill.

Our Food Pantry operates as a zero waste program. Any expired food is either composted on-site or with the City or we send those items to Project: THRIVE! a local animal rescue.
