About

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 Ellis Elementary School. We will pack PowerSacks for families to take home for the weekend. We’ll meet in the school lobby and pack a bag for every student in the school then deliver the bags to the classrooms!

Project Helping volunteers with Food for Thought on the first Thursday of the month. See all available dates and register here: https://projecthelping.org/volunteer/
