Denver Public Library’s Mission To Nourish Young Minds and Bodies

So kids stay fueled for after school activities.

The Healthy Food for Denver’s Kids snack program at Denver Public Library branches serves food to Denver youth experiencing food insecurity—with no eligibility requirements or proof of residence required. The 11 sites operate Wednesday through Friday afternoons, and give out packs that may include items like fruit cups, crackers, cereal bars, carrots with ranch, string cheese, and yogurt. Boxes full of fresh produce and pantry items for households with youth are also available at select locations.
