Giving Back

A true neighborhood market, that’s a part of the community

At Alfalfa’s, we believe it’s our responsibility to enrich and support our local community. Our sense of responsibility is fueled by our passion to help our customers and neighbors with the real issues that affect them and their families.

To that end, we’re not just a neighborhood market. We are an integral part of the community, located in the heart of Boulder. It’s where we do business, but it’s also where we live, work and play. If a part of our community is in need, then we would like to use our resources in an effort to help.

With this vision in mind, we’re proud to partner with two amazing community organizations who provide support to the Boulder community every day:

Community Food Share’s mission is to ensure that no one in Boulder & Broomfield Counties goes hungry. In 2013, Community Food Share distributed over 7.8 million meals to people in need in the area. We donate all of the food that we can’t use through the CFS, which adds up to over 10,000 meals per year.

Growing Gardens is a Boulder-based non-profit organization established in 1998. Growing Gardens’ mission is to enrich the lives of our community through sustainable urban agriculture. Growing Gardens envisions people experiencing a direct and deep connection with plants, the land and each other. Through its many gardening-based programs, Growing Gardens strives to reach gardeners and would-be gardeners of all ages to work alongside the organization and build community through urban agriculture.

School Gift Cards

Now here’s a situation where a little bit of plastic is a good thing. Instead of paying with cash, check or credit, simply purchase prepaid School Gift Cards that credit 7% of the gift card amount to your child’s school. Contact our Community Outreach Coordinator for more information.


We have a rotating list of set charities that we feature on our “Tips for Charity” jars at our coffee bars. These programs are reserved for local, non-profits who align with our mission.

Community Partners

We partner with community oriented groups around the state of Colorado to build our family. Moxie Mom’s, and MOD Moms have recently joined our ranks, and we’re delighted to say that we offer both groups a fantastic discount to help them fill the bellies of their families with healthy and delicious food.

The Presbyterian Manor in Boulder is a residence building for retired folks who are on fixed incomes. We’ve partnered with them and provide healthy discounted meals 7 days a week!

Are you a Church or a Non-Profit? We’ll work with you on a discounted gift card program.
