Help us End Childhood Hunger in Golden

It’s hard to imagine that there are children in our community who are hungry. Roughly 24% of students in Golden schools depend on free or subsidized school breakfast and lunch programs for their main source of sustenance.

If you want to eliminate hunger, everybody has to be involved. -Bono

We are on a mission to help and we encourage you to join us! It’s easy to get involved through volunteering, donating or becoming a partner organization. Everything helps!
