I have been a donor to this charity and its predecessor organization, Compa, for many years. On July 6, 2012, I was very disappointed to hear on Channel 9 Denver, & read in the Denver Business Journal, that the board of Food works had voted for the organization to close its doors, due to continuing funding issues. In particular I was disappointed that the organization had not publicized its plight on Denver media before things got so bad, nor had it let its cohort of donors know how bad things were. I for one would have donated more to help them out as they have had a great program, though perhaps being a bit overambitious when they changed to Food Works. All of the donation requests from Food Works gave no hint that their financial situation was bad. It was "business as usual", all very optimistic and cheery.
