At the School Food Project, we believe that for kids to learn, think and be the best they can be, they have to eat well. Because of this, we are dedicated to improving the health of each student by providing healthy food and offering nutrition education programs to grow young bodies and minds.
BVSD will be distributing several meals' worth of food items and fresh produce to families: Every Monday until further notice (Distribution is in line with the district calendar and will be closed on holidays when school is not in session.)
WANT TO DONATE?
An estimated 10,000 Boulder students are at risk for food insecurity, due to widespread school closures and the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Donate to ensure that our low-income families have adequate food during school closures.
If you are a Boulder company looking to donate food products, Naturally Boulder is helping us coordinate this effort. See this message for more information.
RESOURCES TO STAY AT HOME AND COOK!
Recent school closures and stay-at-home mandates are changing the way we eat. Our team of chefs and registered dietitians are here to share tools and resources with students and families during this time. This page has an emphasis on pantry-friendly staples and the items that are distributed in our emergency food bags. You'll find recipes, helpful lessons on cooking techniques and an interactive Q&A feature where you can ask our team for help with a cooking or nutrition question.
