Colorado SHARE (Food)

I haven't tried this yet, but know people who have. Let us know your experience if you are one who has tried this... Sue

What is SHARE?
The goal of SHARE is to help families save about 50% on their groceries, while encouraging the building of relationships with their neighbors in the community. There are no qualifications...if you eat, you qualify.

Who can participate?
Any one from the affluent to those with struggling budgets can participate in SHARE. You see, even those who can afford to spend more for food are being good stewards with their money by simply being more frugal. What's more, the minimal profits in each share of food sold go to support this program and sometimes those who can't even afford to buy a share. And if you're really not interested in participating for whatever reason, we do take donations, and the donation for what we call a "sponsored share". That means your donation goes to buy food for a neighbor in your community that needs help.

  1. We have a similar program in Utah, The Community Food Co-op of Utah. I haven't tried it yet, but I will try it this month. Thanks for the reminder. Check the website for order forms and local distribution address.
