Its 2018 -2019 school year and we are grateful for the hundreds of friends and supporters we have. We are an organic group as a non profit and we exist in our very fabric by collaborating. Together we can end suffering. Together every week we can reduce hunger suffering. We have over 50 people helping each week.
We strongly and strategically align with corporations promoting servant leadership demonstrated by offering employees time off and donation platforms to support happiness and volunteerism.
The process begins each week with a volunteer who drives to the Food Bank of the Rockies at I 70 and Havana to pick up our weekly order. The driver brings the cases of food to one of packing locations. The volunteers who range in age from 3 to 80 then begin the process of unloading cases of healthy food, readying plastic sacks to hold the seven items and the filling of the sacks begins. We started in 2017 Spring by serving seven schools and growing. Foothills, Emory, Rose Stein, Muholm and Lasley Elementary in Lakewood Colorado.
