Food Assistance

Everyone has the right to food that’s nutritious and healthy.

In Boulder County, just like everywhere else, some people are unable to buy nutritious, healthy food for themselves and their families. Among other things, Food Assistance can help lift individuals and families out of poverty, and improve access to healthy food. Submitting an application is easy, and we’ll walk you through the process.
