Denver Public Schools will provide meals to students and families for the remainder of the school year. Full details below, including a link to a listing of all pick up locations. The three closest locations to Swigert for breakfast and lunch pickup are:
Denver Public Schools is offering free weekday breakfast and lunch to students and families in need at Grab-and-Go sites throughout the city until circumstances change. Vegetarian options are available. To prioritize social distancing, families are not allowed to eat on site. DPS is not able to provide transportation to the Grab-and-Go sites.
Breakfast and lunch are also available for adults and can be picked up every weekday. In addition, weekend breakfast and lunch are available for families to pick up every Friday. The adult and weekend meals are made possible by fundraising from the DPS Foundation.
On Tuesday, Apr. 7, DPS is also launching a new, enhanced weekday meal delivery program. Yellow school buses will deliver meals to schools and community locations throughout the city for the remainder of the school year. They will stop at each site for 20-30 minutes to hand out breakfast and lunch. On Fridays, weekend breakfast and lunch are also available for pickup.
In addition, Food for Thought Denver is providing Powersacks at all DPS Grab-and-Go sites, every Friday until circumstances change. Each Powersack will contain enough non-perishable food for a family of four for two days. These sacks are available for anyone in need, not just for our DPS students.
