Food Pantry

BCAP operates the Jack Hodges Food Pantry in our Boulder office. The Food Pantry provides over 30,000 pounds of food annually to clients living with HIV. The food is high in protein and nutritious, which is especially important for supporting highly active antiretroviral treatments for HIV.

Good nutrition is vital to maintaining stable health for persons with HIV. BCAP maintains a supply of groceries available free to clients whose income makes it hard or impossible for them to maintain a healthy diet. If your income meets our eligibility requirements, you can receive a supplement to your regular grocery shopping twice a month.


Case management staff can also refer you to other area food banks and community meals, as well as help you fill out the necessary paperwork for obtaining food stamps, in the event you qualify for this program.

To access the Jack Hodges Food Pantry at BCAP, if a current client, please contact your assigned Case Manager or reach out to the Services Coordinator. If wanting to ‘Get Started’, please call 303-444-6121 to fill out a Request for Care Services.

Food Pantry Donations


We rely on donations to supplement the food and supplies we purchase to stock our Food Pantry. Member churches of the Interfaith AIDS Coalition (IAC) hold monthly food drives. We also obtain fresh fruits and vegetables from the Farmer’s Market and local growers and have volunteers that deliver groceries to clients who are unable to come in to shop in the Food Pantry.

Please review the list below for our most current needs. You can schedule with the Services Coordinator to bring your donations directly to BCAP’s Boulder Office location (2118 14th Street, between Pine and Spruce), weekdays between 9:00 a.m. – Noon, and 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
