Community in Action with 65 group supporters joining to help Jeffco kids Eat

It is always amazing to see how the good in all of us joins together when most needed.

We are delighted to see the support for ending childhood hunger, just as Mayor Adam Paul has pronounced for the City of Lakewood Colorado.  We are a young non profit with only a couple of years under our belt.  However, when joined with those like Jeffco Action Center and Community Table Arvada and Hunger Free Colorado and Blueprint for Hunger we got what it takes to destroy hunger.

Our get together on November 10th is not meant to be fancy, it is to celebrate the children and families.

Our guests of honor are children —

from Emory and Mulholm Elementary to sign and dance our hearts away.

Please join us in thanking our CORPORATE SPONSORS

First Bank, A 1 Rental, Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, Farmers Insurance.

We hope you enjoy this visual of the wonderful people who are part of who we are .  Without all these volunteers we would not even be Jeffco Eats.  We hope our “family” continues to expand so we can make further inroads in reducing and even eliminating weekend hunger for the children and families . Barbara Moore, Executive Director

 

11 weeks of summer food + 39 weeks of school year food = 50 week program !!! 55,000 lbs

We believe that we are called and appointed to be a big player in ending weekend and during the week hunger for our children and families.  This summer we exponentially expanded from serving Title One and Gap schools [serving hungry kids not in title one school population].Image result for 50 weeks

This summer we had amazing drivers and packers helping people in over 20 locations.  We spanned the faces of hunger spectrum. Image result for faces of hunger

From Section 8 low income housing compexes to trailer parks to swimming pools in low income neighborhoods to summer camps. If we heard about a possibility we pursued them to put food insecurity on hold to some degree.  We gave produce and shelf stable substantial food bags to snacks.  If you serve 11 weeks in summer versus having a 39 week school year program you need 28.2 % more resources financially and volunteers.

We will move to a facility double the size of what we had at Foothills Elementary and Wheat Ridge Head Start in a week.  We need more space to bring in more pallets of 2000 lbs of one type of produce.

We were awarded an equipment grant by Food Bank of the Rockies and Quick Wins Jefferson County Health Department so we now can do some test sites for fresh foods.  We have now a commercial refrigerator and three large freezers.  We got ten new mega shelving units to install.  St Bernadette’s Catholic school was so generous in offering their facility to us and our volunteers.

We have an active Advisory Board headed by Paula Redig who was a local school Principal for a middle school   We have an expanding volunteer coordinator team developing where three or four people will bring us to higher levels of excellence in our operations management.

We have a trained nutritionist who will help us do weekly news tips for our Jeffco Eats weekend food bags.

As you can see we are not kidding about being an amazing dynamic non profit who will succeed for the sake of the children and their families.

We will continue serving many of those who we began helping this summer.  We are not microwave friends we are family with our partners and volunteers.

Would you consider providing for one student for 39 weeks this year ?  We ask for a donation of $156 . $156 weekend food one school year

In the 11 weeks of summer food we gave out over 55,000 lbs of produce, snacks and shelf stable foods.  Together we can end weekend and during the week hunger.
