Denver7: Kids Fest summer food program kicks off Tuesday in Aurora

A family receives information about the Summer Food Service Program that provides meals to Aurora students. The kickoff event for the program was held at Hinkley High School.

Story excerpt:

"The Food Bank of the Rockies is teaming up with Aurora Public Schools to kick off its summer food program for children.

The nonprofit says one in six Colorado kids doesn’t know where their next meal is coming from and it wants to ensure that they don’t go hungry over the summer when they are not in school.

The food bank has gotten a lot of support from the community to afford to keep running the summer program, including the Aurora police and fire departments, the Aurora Public Library and more."
