School Food Pantry

Food Pantry Enrollment Form (click here)

The Food Pantry at Bill Roberts serves our school families who are in need. Our pantry provides free non-perishable food items for families in need of assistance. We understand that our school serves students in a variety of situations, and the success of all children at Bill Roberts is important to us. The food pantry will help provide weekend meals to Bill Roberts students and their immediate family members.

Any student/family requesting assistance will pick up a bag or box of food from the school’s front office each Friday at the end of the day. The bags include various non-perishable items for the weekend.

Please watch this video from the Food Bank of the Rockies. As a food bank member agency, our school has begun sourcing food directly from the food bank.

How can you help?

Volunteer!
Sign up for a shift at the Food Bank of the Rockies, which is in Stapleton’s backyard:

Denver Food Bank Warehouse at 10700 E. 45th Avenue Denver, CO 80239

Each three-hour shift earns 20 pounds of food for our school pantry! This is great way for parents and grandparents to get involved in a very meaningful way.

Drop off non-perishable healthy foods like these at the front desk.

Donate!
Drop off a non-perishable item or two to supplement what we receive from the food bank. Our pantry especially needs pasta, peanut butter, cereal, canned tuna and items to make meals (like Hamburger Helper, side dishes, etc). A collection box is near the front office.

If you are a family in need of assistance, please contact the front office at 720-424-2640 or your child’s teacher or Principal Lea for more information. Please note that the school staff will take great care in maintaining confidentiality.
