Learn more about how your tax dollars are supporting healthy food for Denver kids! Through Ordinance 302, the Healthy Food for Denver’s Kids (HFDK) Initiative has awarded almost $7 million in 2020 to feed Denver’s youth 18 and under and provide education about food and nutrition.
Projects include providing healthy food to youth through school food pantries, snack programs, and no-cost grocery distribution. Organizations are also educating and empowering youth through food justice curriculum, cooking classes, and building and teaching in-school gardens, greenhouses, and hydroponic classrooms. Projects are taking place across the entire city, impacting approximately 129,500 Denver youth. Join HFDK staff from the Denver Department of Public Health & Environment to learn about what the City and County of Denver is doing to promote healthy food access for youth and how you can get involved?
This League of Women Voters of Denver virtual briefing, open to all, will take place on Monday, November 16 at 5:30 p.m. Go to www.lwvdenver.org for a link to the Zoom event.
