What We Do

Feeding the overlooked and underfed

Cornerstone Food Bank has served the disadvantaged in the south metro Denver area since 2002. Cornerstone Food Bank’s mission is to reduce hunger in the south metro Denver area by providing highly nutritional foods to overlooked and underfed families and individuals in a personal caring environment.

 

Cornerstone Food Bank’s philosophy is that if someone needs help enough to ask, we are there to offer it; help is given on the basis of need alone. Cornerstone Food Bank does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, age, gender, gender expression, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, military status, or any other criteria.

 

Cornerstone Food Bank contributes to improved community health and welfare by providing clients with the ingredients for nutritious meals which lead to better health. We enable low income elderly to continue to live independently; we help those who are homeless (or at risk of becoming homeless) to work towards achieving stability and economic self-sufficiency. By providing nourishing food, we promote good nutrition as a foundation for a healthy lifestyle. In addition we strive to assist people in need with resources and referrals to assist them to be self-sufficient.

 

Documents: Cornerstone Food Bank does not have residency requirements for clients to receive food and no documents are needed, but clients are asked to provide birth dates for all members of the household at the time of their first visit.
