School is out and summer lunches are served!
Food Bank of the Rockies will be providing nutritious lunches to kids across our service area all summer. We’re supplying food for more than 70 sites, to kids who might not otherwise have enough healthy food at home.
Kids munched on hamburgers or sandwiches, strawberries, sweet potato fries, salad and milk at College View Elementary, while being entertained by Miles, the Denver Broncos mascot. Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, Bronco Alumni, Ed McCaffrey, Darlene Barnes from the USDA and Tami Anderson from Western Dairy Association presented at the event.
Food Bank of the Rockies provided the food for more than 200 children. Denver Public Schools, Colorado Department of Education, Denver Inner City Parish and Hunger Free Colorado also supported the event.
