Help Food For Thought Eliminate Childhood Hunger in Denver

We hope you’ll join us in our efforts to eliminate childhood hunger in Denver! Food For Thought relies on volunteers, generous donors, companies and organizations who provide support throughout the school year. Here’s how you can help!

Donate

Want to make a big difference in the lives of low-income students in Denver? Each PowerSack we provide costs $4, so even a small donation has a big impact. $128 will provide a PowerSack every Friday for an entire school year for one child. Consider making a recurring donation, a monthly donation goes a long way to helping us create a sustainable organization. No matter what amount you give, 100% of your donation will be used to purchase food which will be distributed directly to the students and families we serve.

Adopt-A-School

Are you part of a corporate or community organization that would like to make an on-going commitment to helping hungry kids in Denver? Consider adopting a school! We’ll pair your organization with a nearby school where students are hungry and provide you with all the support you need to successfully provide PowerSacks each week during the school year. Check out the HUNGER HEAT MAP!!  For more information, please contact Bob Bell @ 720-201-9192.

Virtual food pantry

COMING SOON!

Want to make a food donation to Food For Thought? Because we don’t have the facilities or staff to manage food donations, we’ve created a virtual food pantry! Because of our great partnership with Food Bank of the Rockies, your donations will go so much further than if you purchased food and donated it to us. Check out the VFP today and help us provide food to hungry children in Denver!
