Everyday Eats


Everyday Eats (formerly known as CSFP - Commodity Supplemental Food Program) is a food support program for qualifying Coloradans age 60+ to help keep healthy food staples in your kitchen. 

If you qualify for Everyday Eats, you can pick up your monthly package in our parking lot on the third Wednesday of the month, from 9 to 11 a.m. Packages include rice, beans, cereal and canned goods with plenty of low-sodium and diabetic-friendly options. To make nutritious, complete meals, you can supplement this free program with fresh fruits, vegetables, meat and dairy by shopping in our Client Choice Pantry or using your SNAP benefits. 

Transportation or Mobility Issues? You can designate family members or friends to pick up your Everyday Eats package. 


To learn more about the program and see if you qualify, visit everydayeatsco.org or call 303-866-5097. 

We're Joining the Link2Feed Network

Connecting families to food and resourcesLink2Feed (@link2feed) / Twitter


We’re partnering with Food Bank of the Rockies and joining hundreds of other food pantries in Colorado that use Link2Feed to help families get the food and resources they need quicker, easier and with fewer forms and paperwork. 

In April, Community Table will transition to the Link2Feed client registration system and start issuing pantry cards with barcodes. The “barcode” is your ticket to accessing food and resources at Community Table and other Link2Feed pantries without completing more paperwork. Link2Feed offers convenient online registration and information and materials in English, Russian, Vietnamese, Spanish and French.  

By sharing basic information about your household, you can help make the Link2Feed network more robust and connected. The more information we have, the better services and resources we can recommend to help you and your family. And the collective data will help us better understand hunger in our community and develop much-needed programs and services. Link2Feed is safer than storing information on paper and has high-security standards, similar to what banks use. All information is kept private and is never shared with the government or any outside party. 


We’ll share more about Link2Feed in the coming weeks and how your family can save time, reduce paperwork and access more food and resources by joining the network.

Don't Miss a Message!

We’re adding text messaging to our communication tools to share important information with you quicker and easier.

Keep your family up-to-date on food resources and other assistance by providing your mobile phone number next time you visit.

We promise never to share your personal information and only send text messages about timely matters such as unexpected closures, changes to open hours, special programs, food availability, etc.
