With & For our neighbors
Foothills Mutual Aid Collective started in Fall 2020 slinging hot breakfast burritos, hash browns, and hot chocolate out of carts and coolers in Fort Collins. Today, we support our unhoused neighbors in Loveland and Fort Collins, with 3 meals each week along with other crucial clothing and supplies.
We're a collective of folks using our time and our community's resources to directly support unhoused folks in Larimer County. Mutual aid is neighbors caring for neighbors – from each according to their ability, to each according to their need, without restriction or judgement. We ask people what they need and provide that to the best of our ability.
Distribute meals and supplies to unhoused neighbors
Support neighbors through traumatic displacements (sweeps)
Expand ways to support and impact our community
Mutual aid is by community, for community. All of our support comes from y'all, and all of it goes out to our neighbors with love and care.
If you'd like to contribute but don't see a way below that fits your needs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Cash contributions allow us to keep our weekly food programs going. We also use funds to respond to weather emergencies or other urgent needs.
We currently accept contributions from:
Gift Cards: Local Grocers, ARC/Goodwill, JAX, Big 5, Walmart, etc
Soon, we will be setup on Open Collective, enabling easier contributions and transparency. Those contributions will also be 501(c)3 deductible, but no other contributions to us are as we are not a non-profit.
Sponsor Some Meals?
To maintain & grow our meal program we rely on recurring contributions. If you'd like to provide that support, please email us . Many neighbors say our breakfasts are their best meal of the week!
Join The Collective
We cook and distribute meals and gear multiple times per week in Larimer County. Tasks we need hands for include cooking food, sorting and storing supplies, distributing supplies and food, getting supplies donated, and more! We'd love some folks to help us improve our food sourcing (and hopefully reduce food waste in the process).
More of an on-the-computer helper? We could use all sorts of social media, planning/ops, design, etc. folks.
Ultimately, we want people who share our goals to bring themselves and their skills to the table. If you're a project person, bring your ideas or we've got plenty – compassionate basic services, garden yield overflow collection, heaters, transit tickets & assistance, and more! If you want to join, we'll find a place for ya.
