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.

Donate an Item to our Faces of Hunger Gala on November 10

April 30, 2018
Paula Redig, Jeffco Eats
11266 W. 75th Ave
Arvada, CO 80005
To Whom it May Concern:
Over the past 2 years, , Jeffco Eats, a 501(c)(3) Colorado registered non-profit, has been working
toward eliminating childhood hunger in Jefferson County through our weekend and summer food
programs. Each week we provide weekend food packages for over 400 students and their families.
Sadly, the need is much greater than that. There are over 4,000 children in our county who participate
in free and reduced cost lunch programs. While they are provided for while at school, many face hunger
on the weekends. Each year we strive to meet more of our children’s needs by raising money through
grants, sponsorships, and fundraisers.
Consequently, we are pleased to announce our first fundraiser. Our Faces of Hunger and
Poverty Fundraiser Dinner featuring the ‘Empty Bowl Project’ will be November 10th, 2018 at 6:30 at the
Hampton Inn in Lakewood. Our goal of $25,000.00 seems lofty, but hopefully with the help of generous
funding provided by our community, it can be met.
Please help us achieve our goal by making a donation for our silent auction. We will rely on
donated items to keep our costs low, therefore providing more food for our children.
Would you consider donating an item to our auction? A couple of guidelines are:  Market value must be greater than $25.00
 Items must be new
If you have merchandise or an item that fits these guidelines, please fill out the attached
information slip and send it back to us in the self-addressed and stamped envelope or send us the
donation directly. Someone will be in touch with you to discuss your contribution!
Thank you in advance for your generosity. Please visit our website, for more
information. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call me at 303-589-6012 or email me at Kind Regards,
Paula Redig, Chairman of Advisory Board for Gala
