Food For Thought

Founded by Bob Bell in 2012, Food for Thought Denver was created when Bell became aware that many of Denver’s school kids were not getting enough to eat — especially over the weekends. Working with volunteers and their local Arvada Rotary club, they were able to raise enough donated funds to start providing weekend food bags (aka: PowerSacks) to two Denver public schools.

Today, Food for Thought Denver remains a 100% volunteer organization which strives to eliminate weekend hunger — servicing 76 schools in the Denver area.  Every other week Castro students take a PowerSack home.
