Since launching on May 20, the Aurora Mobile Food Pantry has provided food to more than 21,000 community members, totaling 300,000 pounds of food, or 320,000 meals. The pantry ran every week through Aug. 26 and is returning to host a once-a-month mobile food distribution event starting in September to benefit all members of the Aurora community. Food for 1,500 families along with pet food and baby supplies will also be available.
The Cherry Creek Schools Foundation is proud to sponsor and support this effort. Members of our board and staff have also volunteered to assist with food distribution. The Aurora Mobile Food Pantry requires the support of more than 50 individuals, including community members, city employees and officers from the Aurora Police Department.
