Food for Hope Announces Opening of Northglenn High School Food Bank!

41,000 children in Adams County are considered food insecure.

25% of the homeless population in Adams County is made up of children 0-17

Food for Hope along with the Senior Class 2020 of Northglenn High School have worked together to open the first official High School Food Bank in Adams CountyWednesday, 8/28/2019, the food bank (across from the Counseling Office inside NGHS) officially opens from 11:30am-1:30pm. The food bank will be open every Wednesday 11:30am-1:30pm during the school year for children at NGHS to shop for themselves and their family. It will also be available to families in need who come to the Adams 12 Family Resource office, which is located next door to Northglenn High .

The Northglenn High School Food Bank contains many kinds of easy to prepare foods. Items include: canned vegetables, canned fruits, canned proteins, grains and snacks/misc. “A client choice food bank is the ideal way to serve local students.  This program allows us to expand the type of foods we have typically used in our weekly Elementary Food Bag Program now available at 9 Adams County Schools. The new food bank will also provide snacks similar to those we distribute in our School Fuel Program that benefits 2 area high schools and 3 new elementary schools this year”, stated Emily Stromquist, Director of Food for Hope.  All programs described will start after Labor Day and continue through the school year. Inside of the Food Bank there is also a Precious Child Boutique, school supplies, and NGH school spirit wear.

Thank you for Feed 5000 Success!

Over 400 volunteers, hundreds of donors and several community partners, made it possible for us to distribute 1,700 meals to families in need in north Denver the week before Thanksgiving. Our partner, ThornCreek Church, produced this video to show what it looks like for the community to come together and help their neighbors. We want to express our gratitude to these local businesses and organizations that donated items and services to make this event possible.

S.O.S Group Sponsors Child!

A local group of moms and their children make up the group - S.O.S., which stands for "Summer Of Service".  They use the extra time in the summer to serve in nonprofits in the north Denver area, helping local citizens in need.  Last summer, this incredible group held a food drive outside of King Soopers and brought in hundreds of pounds of food donations for Food for Hope.  This year, the group supported our organization by putting on a bake sale near Park Village Pool.  Their results were inspiring!  These kids raised close to $200 in only 2 hours!  That amount will sponsor a local child to be fed by Food for Hope for an entire school year.
