Amid supply-chain crunch, Harvest of Hope Pantry calls for food, toiletries donations 

BOULDER — Harvest of Hope Pantry officials say “recent supply-chain issues have decreased our access to stores of food normally supplied by the national network of food banks,” and they are requesting food and toiletries donations from the community. 

“Donations from once reliable supporters and food sources have continued to decline, and as a result we have significantly increased our monthly spending in order to meet our mission to ‘provide healthy supplemental food to Boulder families and individuals in need of food assistance within a safe, welcoming and non-judgmental environment,’” the food bank said in a news release. “We are turning to you, the Boulder community, for help as we attempt to maintain the quantity and quality of what is on offer to pantry shoppers.”

Harvest of Hope’s most-needed items include:

  • Chunky-style pop-top soups.
  • Canned chili.
  • Menstruation products.
  • Toothbrushes and toothpaste.
  • Canned chicken and meat.
  • Chewy granola bars.
  • Breakfast cereal.

Donations can be dropped off at 4830 Pearl St. in Boulder.
