Mutual Aid Partners
We are a grassroots oriented, community-led nonprofit that supports mutual aid efforts in Mesa County. Our focus is on building community and reducing food insecurity and poverty through a platform that centers on the connection between community members, resources, organizations, and access to a choice food pantry.
Born from an immediate need to fill support gaps during the 2020 pandemic, our work has become a deep-rooted commitment to nurturing sustainable projects that lower barriers and create positive change.
We maximize our impact by focusing on collaborative efforts, specifically those aimed toward meaningful outreach through a lens of equity and accessibility.
