Food Pantry by Harvest of Hope Pantry

2960 Valmont Road, Boulder, CO 80301

Website: www.hopepantry.org
Phone: 720.382.1971


Harvest of Hope Pantry's sole mission is food assistance. We offer a client choice shopping experience where individuals select preferred foods within our shopping allowances. Anyone wishing to shop at the pantry must fill out an intake form.



  • Food to meet basic nutritional needs


Clients without Kitchens: The pantry ensures that their shopping experience allows them to leave with a daily amount of supplemental food to fill the gap that other services are unable to offer. Providing easy-to-eat foods, such as protein bars, pop-top canned items, yogurt, produce and fresh sandwiches, gives clients easy-to-transport foods. Clients without kitchens can drop in at any time to shop between 12 – 2 PM, Monday through Friday.

Those without kitchens are asked to complete an intake form. There is no requirement to show ID.


Clients with Kitchens: Clients with kitchens have the opportunity to select refrigerated and frozen foods, in addition to fresh produce and bread, with consideration to food safety. A variety of dairy foods, perishable prepared meal items and protein foods, are available to these clients with refrigeration.

Clients with kitchens have the opportunity to shop one day each week. We have shopping hours Monday through Friday from 9AM to 11AM and evening hours on Thursday from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The Boulder Shelter for the Homeless provides opportunities for housing solutions, safe shelter, food and support services for up to 160 individuals year around. Founded in 1982, the Boulder Shelter is located in Boulder, Colorado. They provide homeless services for adults in Boulder County.

The first step to receiving shelter and support services for adults experiencing homelessness in Boulder County is to complete their Coordinated Entry screening. The Shelter then provides support with a focus on identifying housing opportunities for those clients who are referred to our services.

What happens at Coordinated Entry?

You will meet with a staff person and complete a brief assessment. Based on the information gathered through the assessment you will be referred to the local service provider that can best support your needs.
