Healthy Food for Denver's Kids: Snack and Food Box Programs

The Denver Public Library has once again received the Healthy Food for Denver's Kids (HFDK) grant for 2021-2022. The grant, launched by the Denver Department of Public Health & Environment (DDPHE), aims to support healthy food access and food based education for youth.

We are distributing healthy food boxes full of fresh produce and pantry items for households with youth 18 and under. Boxes are available Wednesdays from 5-6 p.m. and thereafter while supplies last. Contact these locations for more information.

This year, 11 locations are also distributing healthy snacks to youth 18 and under through July 2022. In addition, this grant will help us provide employment for teens at these locations. For snack distribution hours, contact any of these branch locations:
