Made possible by the generosity of donors, the Family Medicine Center (FMC) Food Pantry opened in 2017 after a survey of over 2,000 patients showed high levels of food insecurity. Stocked with free, nutritious foods and family-friendly meal ideas, our on-site food pantry allows individuals to receive health care services and nutritional food all within one visit. 

Our client-choice model empowers folks to choose the foods they want or need. Clients may cater their food selections to any dietary restrictions of themselves or their family members.  

Shortly after opening, the need for access to fresh food in the community quickly became apparent. Our unique relationship with UCHealth and the Food Bank for Larimer County allows us to support individuals and families in connecting nutrition to their health needs. All Larimer County residents are now able to utilize the FMC Food Pantry. 

The pantry is stocked with fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy, proteins, and canned and packaged staples such as beans, pasta, peanut butter, and more. Distributed food is largely sourced through the use of grant funding, direct monetary donations, community garden donors, and local food rescue initiatives with Sprouts Farmers Market and Great Harvest Bread Co. 

It takes a community to feed our community, and we’re committed to providing the resources necessary to live a happier, more self-sufficient life. In 2022, the FMC Food Pantry supported northern Colorado through: 

  • Over 300,000 pounds of food distributed
  • 11,472 food pantry visits
  • 6,123 unique individuals served 
  • 2,101 unique households served 

The pantry is open on a walk-in basis. We are staffed by UCHealth employees, volunteers, and through CSU internships. For the FMC Food Pantry hours, address, or learn more about volunteering, visit:
