The FoCo Cafe is a nonprofit restaurant that serves everybody - no matter how much they can afford to pay. Due to Covid, they're making hot meals that are to be delivered to folks in need, and we do the delivery!
We have six 2-hour shifts every week day (starting at 10:45, 11:00, 11:15, 11:30, 11:45, 12:00). You'd just sign up for what works for you, and we'll send you the details of who you're delivering to the day before. You'd show up at FoCo Cafe to pick up the meals, deliver them to a few houses (usually no more than 7), and then you're done! All of the deliveries are contactless, so you'd call recipients to let them know you're delivering, and then just leave them outside their door.
The mission of the Fort Collins Delivery Network is to provide at-risk individuals in the Fort Collins Area with access to food, medicine, and other essential supplies via a network of compassionate volunteers.
The Fort Collins Delivery Network was founded in March, 2020 in order to deliver groceries to folks who were unable to leave their homes due to the COVID pandemic. Over the last several months, we've been expanding our services beyond grocery delivery. We also offer financial assistance for folks that are having difficulty affording groceries, and we're hoping to soon deliver food boxes directly from the food bank. In addition, we partner with the FoCo Cafe (a nonprofit restaurant) to deliver hot meals to folks in need.
Essential Supply Deliveries on Demand:
These volunteers deliver essential supplies to folks in need. While the FoCo Cafe shifts (below) are at specific times, this service is on demand, so we just text our volunteers when an order comes in and they can claim it if they're free. These orders typically take about 2 hours to fill, but some orders are shorter.
