Project Angel Heart

A nonprofit organization

Project Angel Heart prepares and delivers medically tailored meals to Coloradans living with cancer, kidney disease, HIV/AIDS, and other serious illnesses - at no cost to them. 

When you make your Colorado Gives Day gift today through December 5, your gift will be increased by the statewide incentive fund. We’re also happy to share that your gift to Project Angel Heart will have an additional match, dollar for dollar, up to $250,000, thanks to a group of generous supporters! That means your gift will provide TWICE as many medically tailored meals to Coloradans living with severe illnesses.

Together, we can give hope and health to more neighbors in need.  


Our vision is for all Coloradans living with severe illness to have access to nutritious food that supports their health and well-being. To that end, we compassionately deliver comfort and support through high-quality nutrition services, including medically tailored meals, while also advocating for the principles of "Food is Medicine."

Background Statement

One Saturday in 1991, a group of friends delivered a donated lasagna to 12 neighbors living with HIV/AIDS in Denver, Colorado. Inspired by the difference a compassionate visit and a hot meal made, they continued delivering meals each week- and Project Angel Heart was born.

What started as an effort to bring comfort and love to those dying during the HIV/AIDS epidemic grew into a social safety net for Coloradans living with all serious illnesses. Donated lasagna has evolved into nutritious, freshly prepared meals, made by professional chefs and tailored to meet clients' medical needs. And the delivery area continues to expand outside the Denver metro area, now serving 1,650 square miles from Longmont to Pueblo.

This coming year, the organization will prepare and deliver 750,000 medically tailored meals to 5,000 Coloradans living with cancer, kidney/heart/lung disease, HIV/AIDS, and other severe illnesses.
