This year, the after-school snacks and supper program is being implemented through a partnership between the City and County of Denver, Denver Public Schools, Food Bank of the Rockies and Hunger Free Colorado. The program is available to children under the age of 18 and located at various Denver recreation centers, schools, churches and nonprofit organizations until the end of the school year.
The after-school snacks and supper program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and implemented through local sponsors. The program is currently operating in 68 sites across the city at various Denver Parks and Recreation Centers, schools, churches and nonprofit organizations. There are no income requirements to participate in the program. Revolution Foods, the city's vending partner, will provide meals to 22 of the after-school snacks and supper sites throughout Denver.
Families can call the Hunger Free Hotline at (855) 855-4626 to find a participating site in their area. Bi-lingual hotline navigators are available Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
