OUR MISSION

LIFT-UP is the leader in providing equitable food security for individuals and families; educating, building understanding and support to end hunger from Parachute to Aspen.

Incredible Farmers

Without our farmers and ranchers, where would we be? We’re proud to support our valley’s farmers and ranchers for all of the reasons they make our lives better.

Thrift Store

LIFT-UP recognizes the need for affordable, quality clothes, shoes and house hold items for those in the Roaring Fork Valley. Our Rifle Thrift Store provides the community with just that, while also providing a place for folks to donate their gently used items thus reducing the landfill impact.

The Thrift Store is filled with tremendous bargains for value-conscious shoppers and all profits go to supporting LIFT-UP’s hunger relief programs.

3-YEAR STRATEGIC PLAN 2022-2025

The rate with which LIFT-UP responded to the closure or our pantries while shifting to mobile distribution was a massive undertaking.

Our distribution infrastructure has had to expand and grow as fast as the 600% increase in need we have experienced since 2020. Read More.
