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.
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.
Boulder Valley School District's foundation, Impact on Education is accepting donations to ensure that our low-income families have adequate food and the tools they need to stay on top of their education.
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.
