The Attack on the Stigma Continues

As one school year winds to an end, we are ecstatic to announce we have been tentatively approved to receive a grant that will fund most of our food work for the 2021/2022 school year. The attack on the stigma associated with hunger continues!

In the 2020/2021 school year, we procured fresh fruits and veggies, and top-quality meat, from the local farmers, ranchers and produce distributors in Colorado, and provided it to Denver Public Schools students and families – neighbors who needed our help surviving the economic impact of COVID. We were blessed to form partnerships with and serve five schools: RiseUp Community School, Ellis Elementary, DSST Cole High School, Bradley International and University Park Elementary.

For the coming school year, we are adding at least two new schools to our farm-to-student model of food security. And we need you! We are going to need our loving community of Stigmattack volunteers to help make this happen.

Stay tuned for more details as we roll through the summer. We will be ready to meet the need for nutrition without shame when school is back in session at the end of the summer.
