About Integrated Family Community Services
Integrated Family Community Services (IFCS) is an emergency food provider and are called upon by Food Bank of the Rockies often. IFCS can accommodate 1000’s of pounds of food at a time and have a rented refrigerated/freezer storage unit. They have a link on their website called onecanfood.org where you can make a monetary donation. At this time, they are serving 16x’s the amount of people as before COVID-19. IFCS serves a 50 mile radius from their location, but will not turn anyone away that shows up in person asking for food, at this point they will serve anyone in Colorado. On average, they serve 3,200 people a month. They are in need of hygiene and paper products ie., rubbing alcohol, hand soap, toilet paper, etc. They will accept shelf stable items and kid friendly food like boxed mac and cheese, non-condensed soup, all non-perishable foods. They will also accept gift cards to Kings Soopers, Walmart, Target, Safeway etc. They have a special relationship with Kroger/King Soopers where they can buy more with less, so gift cards there are more valuable.
