During this difficult time, we ask that our community please continue to help the hands that harvest!
CMS remains open to provide basic needs assistance to farmworkers and their families. We will be in the office during our regular Drop-In hours: 12 pm to 6 pm, Monday through Thursday. Please call before coming, if possible: 970-464-5226. Our staff will provide references to community resources as well as personal support. To the greatest extent possible, we will provide services by phone and via email or social media. We will observe social distancing practices and ask that all visitors maintain a distance of 6 feet from one another, both inside and outside the building.
We know that CMS participants are heavily impacted by the COVID-19 situation and we want to lend a hand, while at the same time protecting their health and safety and that of our staff.
Nonperishable (and often fresh produce and dairy products) from our pantry will be available for pick up, by appointment.
In June we will re-establish a “grab and go” weekly meal for farmworkers and their families. Meals may be delivered to farmworker housing by our driver(s). We will focus on supporting those in need through our food pantry. We especially welcome financial donations for food pantry supplies or purchase of grocery store or other gift cards to be distributed to individuals and families facing financial challenges due to the COVID-19 situation. We will prepare boxes of staple foods to distribute, with emphasis on helping people who are unemployed or with limited work at this time.
CMS’ mission is to serve farmworkers and their families but we do not turn away people who come to us in need of some temporary help.
