A nonprofit organization

No one should have to worry about where their next meal will come from.

Our Vision is to ensure food security for all. We work on creating sustainable solutions to overcome the challenges of food insecurity across every generation and culture.

BGOLDN partners with local schools to meet children’s immediate nutritional needs and provides low-income families with a stable source of fresh food to end cycles of hunger in Golden, Colorado.

Your Testimonials

"Food is like gas, you need it to fuel you. It feeds you so that you can keep going. As students, without food we get tired and cannot concentrate as well. These programs are extremely helpful!"
- Student

"I cannot change the harsh economic reality that many people will face. But I can do my part to help people eat and help people stay employed. That is what BGOLDN is about and that is why I am donating one of my biweekly pay checks per month."
- Supporter

"We really appreciate what you guys are doing to keep our community fed during this crisis. Not only does it mean a lot to us as a business, it means that people who are in a tough spot right now don't have to worry about food."
- Bonfire Burritos Team

"Thank you so much for doing this! I lost my job due to COVID and since I have no money to spare, eating out is not an option. I have gone to pick up lunch for me and my sons twice now and it is so much fun."
- Janice

Giving Activity


Our mission is to increase food security in the Golden community through innovative partnerships and programs. We operate thanks to the support of our partnerships and volunteers. Now, more than ever, we must continue to educate, support, and overcome challenges together.

Background Statement

Let's end hunger in Golden! The Golden Backpack Program paved the way for distributing food and meals to Golden school children and families, and now, we've expanded the mission. The GBP evolved to be part of BGOLDN, to address the impacts of COVID-19 on the residents of Golden. Now, BGOLDN serves students just as The Golden Backpack Program did, while continuing to confront food insecurity for people of all ages throughout the community. We work with local schools as well as providing food through our Fresh Food Pantry.
