FOOD PACKING BEGINS!

DPS Modifications

As you’re aware, the ongoing complications of Coronavirus are constantly forcing school districts to adjust their plans. As we continue to embrace all efforts required to feed Denver’s hungry kids, Denver Public Schools (DPS) has modified our PowerSack drop off sites down from 88 schools to 53 schools. As a result, there’s not an immediate need to bolster our packing efforts with our satellite pack sites — FFT East and FFT West. This change includes Pack Start Day on September 11th. However, the FFT Central/MSU pack site remains in play for Pack Start Day and later dates!

What should you do?

If you’ve already signed up to volunteer at either FFT West or FFT East through September, you will be receiving a cancellation notice of those events. There’s nothing else you need to do there. However, we’d love for you to join us at FFT Central/MSU. Friday, September 11th (no signup is required for Central on this day if you are transferring in from East or West) and help us kick off this school year with Bob Bell and your FFT family! We’ll keep you posted when our satellite pack sites reopen.

Sign up for future Central pack dates today!

If you are healthy and can meet the guidelines listed at the bottom of this email, please sign up for future dates by clicking on the button links below and join us.

Adherence to the guidelines listed below are required to come and remain on the pack site.
