IFCS: A Denver Area Food Bank and More To Nourish Lives

Meet some of the 6,000+ individuals we serve monthly, along with volunteers and partners who collaborate in our mission:

Nourish Lives with a Monetary Gift

Integrated Family Community Services is reliant on community support to fulfill its mission. We have been partnering with the community to alleviate hunger since 1964. From making a cash donation to choosing IFCS as the charity recipient of your shopping rewards, every gift makes a difference. We maximize every dollar to ensure that as much as possible goes directly to help those in need, assisting children, families and seniors in climbing out of the downward spiral of poverty. 

With your partnership, IFCS provides a range of services for those who are food insecure or hungry in our local area. Each day, families and individuals make tough choices between food and other necessities. Read about lived experiences from IFCS program recipients and community partners. 

Your donation contributes to One Can Feed (OCF), our Hunger Alleviation Program, helping to fill the shelves, fridges and freezers of IFCS. Thank you!

Donations are tax-deductible. IFCS’s Tax ID: #84-0579740
