COMPA Food Bank MInistry

Organization Description: 

COMPA is the second largest of the six major food banks in Colorado and the only one that provides its food free of charge. COMPA's philosophy is that it is more effective to provide the food to our agencies free of charge so that they may utilize their resources for other programs that help achieve self-sufficiency. This is done without discrimination due to race, sexual orientation, mental or physical handicap, or religion. COMPA's primary goal is to provide a consistent supply of high quality, nutritious grocery products to our agencies.
