BIENVENIDOS FOOD BANKa community-based organization in Northwest Denver
The Bienvenidos Food Bank has been helping neighbors in need for four decades. Our Mission is to provide emergency and supplemental food assistance in ways that promote respect and dignity. Our Vision is a community equipped with the tools and resources to move beyond hunger and toward greater independence. What We Do
We currently serve 600 to 900 people every week. Families may “shop” for the food they need and we strive to always provide healthy choices such as fresh fruits and vegetables that many families can’t afford. Our Impact
The Bienvenidos Food Bank is a program of the Northwest Family Assistance Center, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Our History
The Bienvenidos Food Bank has been a constant source of nutritious food for Northwest Denver families in need for the last 40 years.
September is also National Hunger Action Month. Here’s how you can help support your neighbors in need:
Donate food during the Sept. 2 Tennyson Street First Friday Art Walk
Participating merchants along Tennyson Street between 38th and 46th will be collecting food and cash donations that night (and some all month).
Local 46 will offer $1 off your bill for each food item you bring in!
