Food For Thought - Denver's annual fundraiser, Rock-A-Belly, served up food and beers from some of Denver's top restaurants and breweries to go along with rock and roll from Los Straightjackets and the Hillbilly Hellcats on Saturday night at the Tivoli Turnhalle. Food For Thought is a non-profit organization that provides weekend meals for Denver school kids. Every Friday the group delivers "PowerSacks" filled with food to eligible schools for students to take home as a supplement to meals they receive at school. Money raised by Rock-A-Belly will go toward adding two new schools to the program. Here's a list of the participating restaurants and breweries.
