Provide Meals to Children During the COVID Crisis

The JFS Emergency Lunchbox Express program delivers food to several housing developments in "food deserts" to serve children who cannot access school-based lunch sites. These developments house a large number of immigrant, refugee, and other vulnerable working families - all of whom have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. Bags of meals will last the children for several days, including weekends.

Sign up for shifts at our SignUpGenius page.

Volunteers will be provided with masks and gloves. Volunteers and recipients will all adhere to a strict physical distancing protocol. Please do not volunteer if you are experiencing any symptoms of illness or are in a higher-risk category.

Packing Volunteers: Pack bags of meals at our SHALOM Denver location, 2498 W. 2nd Ave., Denver, CO 80223.

Distribution Driver Volunteers: Meet at SHALOM Denver to receive information about the day's locations. Driving your own cars, you will follow our Lunchbox Express vans to the sites and distribute the bags of meals to families.

Children ages 12 and over are welcome to volunteer with an adult. One child per adult, please add child's name and age in comment field, then select "2" from "Quantity" drop down menu.

We are extremely reliant on our volunteers for the success of this program, so please only sign up if you are able to commit your time for the entire shift.

If you signed up for a shift and have questions, call 303.597.5000.

If you are unable to volunteer, please consider making a donation to help us meet our increased need for services, and your gift will be matched. View the JFS COVID-19 Response page for more information about our emergency programs and ways to donate. Thank you!
