Denver Public Schools Are Feeding Those in Need

Denver Public Schools Are Feeding Those in Need

In light of the coronavirus epidemic, Denver Public Schools have had to make considerable changes.

Starting on Tuesday, April 7, all students began remote learning, which will last until the end of the 2020 school year.

Though campuses are closed to on-site learning, DPS has extended a free meal service to provide for not only DPS students, but their families, and anyone else in need.

Grab-and-go breakfasts and lunches are available from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at twelve schools throughout the city, and a meal delivery service is stopping at an additional 36 locations throughout the city.

In addition to weekday meals, Food for Thought Denver is providing "Powersacks" on Fridays. These weekend meal kits contain enough non-perishable food for a family of four for two days. Powersacks are available for anyone in need and can be picked up at the twelve schools that offer weekday meal service.

Select Denver recreation centers are also serving dinner to children eighteen years and younger, Monday through Friday.

More information about Denver Public School's COVID-19 response and services can be found on the DPS website.
