City and County of Denver Department of Human Services | #BeHuman

As the peak of the summer harvest nears, colorful fruits and vegetables are beginning to fill the stalls at our local grocery stores and farmers markets. It is easy to take fresh produce for granted, but for some in our city, nourishing food can be difficult to access and afford. At Denver Human Services, we believe that improving access to fresh foods is key to supporting well-being and equity for all Denver residents.

I’m thrilled that Denver Human Services is continuing our partnership with Denver Botanic Gardens to bring fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables to our offices in Sun Valley and Montbello every Friday through October at deeply discounted prices (you can find more information about the Farm Stands here). Even more, I am pleased to announce that our friends at SAME Café will be joining us with their donation-based, pay what you can food truck every Friday beginning July 12. More information about that partnership is included below.

The Farm Stands are open to anyone in need, regardless of their involvement with our programs and services, and accept cash, card, and EBT. They’re one of the ways we’re reaching for a vision of a healthy community where each person is connected, supported, safe, and well. I hope you’ll join us!

Together, we’ve got this!
