CBS4: Food Bank Of The Rockies Teams Up With Aurora Public Schools For Grocery Distribution

Story excerpt:

"After six months of being apart, families and teachers were finally able to connect in person on Tuesday morning. Staff at Vaughn Elementary School in Aurora joined community donors to help give out food bags to about 800 students, in a safely distanced fashion.

Cars drove through the parking lot in a line and bags were brought right to their windows.

'That helped me a lot and I really appreciate it,' said parent Martha Ledesma, clutching her bags, which contained fresh produce, dairy, and meat for her family.

The distribution is part of a new joint effort between Food Bank of the Rockies and Cigna’s Healthier Kids for Our Future Initiative, just in time for the new school year."
