If you already have a Link2Feed card from another Denver area food pantry that card will work at Covenant Cupboard and you will not need to register again.
Only registered clients are eligible for the special distributions such as toys at Christmas for the families children, back to school backpacks, and turkeys at Thanksgiving.
