Denver Public Schools Are Feeding Those in Need

In light of the coronavirus epidemic, Denver Public Schools is offering free food for all who are hungry. Starting on Monday, March 16, sack breakfasts and lunches were made available at twelve schools throughout the city. Meals for students come directly from DPS, whereas meals for adults are made possible by fundraising from the DPS Foundation.

Starting on Monday, March 30, DPS has transitioned to a once-daily meal service from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

In addition, 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 any of the twelve schools offering weekday meal service.

Select Denver recreation centers are also serving dinner to children eighteen years and younger, on weekdays only.

From March 25 through March 27, schools were also offering laptops, Internet hotspots and other technology for students who need resources in advance of the transition to online learning, which will begin on April 7.

More information about food-service locations, technology pick-up and other COVID-19 DPS services can be found on the DPS website.
