Event description

Description

The mission of Food For Thought is the elimination of weekend hunger in Denver’s Title 1 elementary schools. Each PowerSack has 9-13 items, enough to feed a family of four 2 meals over the weekend. FFT targets schools where 90% or more of the students are eligible for free and reduced lunch programs (income of a family of four is less than $29K/year to qualify). By providing a Powersack to each child in the school each week, they work to assure that no child goes hungry over the weekend.

WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?

Join us in assisting Food for Thought at Greenwood Elementary School. We will pack PowerSacks for families to take home for the weekend. Volunteers may help set up assembly lines, pack bags and deliver to the classrooms.

Does this event require special skills?

This is a low-impact/physical area, though it does require standing for the full shift. And we consider a willingness to help others a very special skill, but you’re reading this, so you already have that one!

This is a great opportunity for volunteers who are at least 12 years old.
