Direct Financial Support

is critical to our mission

Cash donations allow ACFB to purchase bulk quantities of food at significantly discounted or wholesale prices. They also provide us the ability to purchase healthy, perishable items like fresh dairy products, vegetables and fruits that are essential for the wellbeing of our clients.

Some examples of how your donation can help:

  • $25 provides a complete Thanksgiving meal for a family
  • $25 provides the Bridges to Opportunity program RTD bus passes for clients needing transportation on their path to self-sufficiency
  • $50 provides a Bridges to Opportunity GED client with program study materials, eight weeks (or more) of instructional time, and one testing site fee
  • $120 provides weekend food for one child for one school year in the “Backpack” program
  • $150 provides a Bridges to Opportunity client with a complete GED testing package and the education needed to take the next step in finding employment
  • $250 provides fresh fruits and vegetables for one month of a Mobile Pantry site
  • $400 provides once-a-month, emergency food for an individual for a year
  • $400 provides three weeks of fresh milk for 750 households
