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!


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.


Colorado Gives Day

It’s more than just a day. It’s a movement that inspires and unites thousands of donors to give where they live and support Colorado nonprofits. This year, Community First Foundation and FirstBank are presenting Colorado Gives Day on December 5, 2017.

Colorado Gives Day features a $1 Million Incentive Fund, created by Community First Foundation and First Bank. It is one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country. Every donation made through on Colorado Gives Day is boosted by the incentive fund, which increases the value of every dollar. For example, if a nonprofit organization receives 10% of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, that same nonprofit receives 10% of the $1 Million Incentive Fund.

Please consider a donation to Food For Thought on Colorado Gives Day. Your entire donation will be used to purchase food for our program.

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


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!
