Weekend Food Program

Our Weekend Food Program aims to fill the nutritional gap experienced by some Park Hill students over the weekend. Every Friday during the school year, we provide a bag to each student in this program that includes two breakfasts, two lunches, and two snacks.

Volunteers administer the program, making sure students receive a variety of nutritious and kid-friendly foods. This group not only packs all of the bags, but also picks up food from Food Bank of the Rockies and delivers bags to area schools.

As part of Food Bank of the Rockies Totes of Hope program, we receive a donation of food each week that covers many of the lunch items. We provide breakfast and snack items through donations from neighbors and businesses.

Visit our Donate page to provide financial support for this program and find our shopping list. You can also purchase food directly from our Amazon Wishlist.
