Food Pantry to Return to the Shopping Model

Growing Home is transitioning the Food Pantry back to the food choice model beginning Tuesday, October 26, 2021. Participants will be able to come every two weeks and choose their food proportionate to their family size. At this time Growing Home will also be making some changes to days and hours of operation.

What does this mean for participants?

  • Appointments will no longer be needed
  • Days and hours will shift to Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
  • The Food Pantry will be closed on Monday for cleaning and stocking

To prepare for these changes, the Food Pantry will be closed for renovations from Monday, October 11 through Monday, October 25. If you or know someone you know is in need of food during the closure, please reach out to Mile High United Way by dialing 211 or by visiting We will also have staff on hand to help with referrals.

If you are a regular volunteer in the Food Pantry, stay tuned for an email with details on how this will impact your opportunities for volunteering.
