Lunchbox Express

Lunchbox Express

In response to COVID-19 we have made adjustments to our Lunchbox Express program. To respond to the large number of children who, for a variety of reasons, cannot access existing school-based lunch sites, we’ve launched our Emergency Lunchbox Express program. We are delivering meals to seven locations that include large housing projects throughout metro Denver in “food deserts.” These projects house immigrant, refugee, and other vulnerable working families — all of whom have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 crisis. JFS is providing 11,000 meals; breakfast and lunch, to feed vulnerable kids seven days a week.

JFS is going to each site twice a week and dropping off meals to last 3 to 4 days to ensure freshness. Furthermore, a parent or guardian simply needs to notify us how many children are in their home and we will hand over the meals. Children do not need to be present, thus ensuring older children are also fed during this pandemic.

Currently, JFS expects the Emergency Lunchbox Express program to continue through June 30, 2020, if not the entire summer.
