About Us

Open Arms Food bank is a 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation originally founded in 2002.

A few very caring and
compassionate individuals saw an overwhelming need in the SW Jefferson County area of Colorado and
chose to reach out to their neighbors. They began in a small 300 square foot room and have expanded to our
current size of over 7200 square feet. Open Arms, a partner of Food Bank of the Rockies, is a full service food
bank in Littleton, Colorado. We currently service as many as 250 families a week, some of whom come from
over 50 miles every Tuesday afternoon in order to receive our assistance. 
Volunteers make sure that any overages get funneled into other charities so that nothing goes to waste.

Need Help?

Open Arms Food Bank operates on a "First Come, First Served" basis. Food distribution is from 12pm - 3pm,  every Tuesday.

If you, or someone you know, are in need of food assistance we are here to help. Open Arms Food Bank provides
produce, dairy, meat, canned/boxed goods and bakery items every Tuesday from 12:00pm to 3:00pm. We allow our
clients to shop and select for themselves the food for their family nutritional needs. You will be asked to provide us with some basic information about you and your family.


Once a month you may apply for a separate TEFAP box with additional foods (meats, juices, canned goods)
for you and/or your family. The amount of food contained in your TEFAP box is determined by the number of family
members in your household. If you are also applying for a TEFAP Box, you must bring an identification card and a current
piece of mail. Diapers and personal hygiene products are by request, when available.
