The Colfax County Food Pantry is located at 1213 Colfax St. (under the viaduct).
The pantry is open Wednesdays from 5:00-7:00pm. In case you arrive at the pantry during regular hours and no one is there, the number for the church on call for each month is posted on the door.
In light of the increasing number of cases in our health district, we have now switched to a drive-thru model. Volunteers will load food for families into vehicles.
All residents of Colfax County are welcome to come receive food once a month.
We rely on our awesome volunteers to keep the food pantry running! If you would like to volunteer, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page, or get in touch with the church on call for the month (see below).
