I hate to hear stats like one in six Colorado children don’t have access to the food they need. That’s a problem more so in the summer without access to school lunches, but at least in the Aurora area there is help…

There are six sites in the Aurora area for Cherry Creek School District students and two joint sites with Aurora Public Schools to get free lunches this summer.

The free distribution program will run Monday through Friday, June 5 – July 27. It will be closed on June 19, July 3 and 4.

Lunch service is from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the following locations:

  • Canyon Creek Elementary School – 6070 S. Versailles Pkwy. in Aurora
  • Eastridge Community Elementary School – 11777 E. Wesley Ave. in Aurora
  • Independence Elementary School – 4700 S. Memphis St. in Aurora
  • Red Hawk Ridge Elementary School – 16251 E. Geddes Ave. in Aurora
  • Sunrise Elementary School – 4050 S. Genoa Way in Aurora
  • Village East Elementary School – 1433 S. Oakland St. in Aurora

In conjunction with Aurora Public Schools – outdoor service is available from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at:

  • Utah Park – 1800 S. Peoria St. in Aurora
  • Mission Viejo Park – 3999 S. Mission Aurora
