Founded in 1982 by five church congregations, the Arvada Community Food Bank quickly gained support of city and county governments, businesses, civic groups, and other human service providers.
ACFB has always been volunteer-centric, growing from a few friends actively distributing food,to a volunteer force nearing 300 people and providing approximately 20,000 hours of service. Annual community food donations have grown to exceed 500,000 lbs. ACFB is a true community organization.
ACFB believes it can produce a significant impact in the quality of life in our community, not only by addressing hunger, but also by building community and improving the overall economic standards in its service area. ACFB will continue to provide innovative programs to provide food resources to targeted populations in an ever-widening network through Northern Jefferson County Colorado.
