Food Access Programs In Denver For Your Family

(Photo by Helen H. Richardson/The Denver Post)

Did you know we are serving free meals daily for children from 9am-1pm? They get an entree (made by actual chefs), fruit and milk.

We plan to continue this until August 31 and maybe later. And we know food access and affordability is important to you and guess what…it’s important to us, too. So please remember we accept SNAP and Double Bucks plus much of our food is Colorado homegrown, fresh from farms and ranches.

Treat yourself and your family to meat from Sangria Ranch, whole chickens (frozen or live) from Marion’s Ranch, eggs from Deanne’s Farm as well as custom tea blends and locally roasted coffee. You’ll always find lots of veggies and fruit as well. Hope to see you soon and we are open Tuesdays-Sundays from 11am-7pm, 5045 W 1st Ave.
