Lakewood, Colorado (KDVR) —The Action Center and Sheriff’s Office of Denver distributed Thanksgiving meals to more than 1,650 families on Saturday.

Approximately 400 volunteers at the Action Center were part of a drive-through food distribution at Lakewood. They gave their families a box or two of food and a gift card to help them buy turkey and ham.

“Some of the power of this not only gives someone extra food to spend their holidays and weekends, but also helps people know that they are not alone and that there are others they care about. “Volunteer Antoinette Gawin said, President and Chief Executive Officer of Terumo Blood and Cell Technologies. “We all have to unite to get over this a little stronger.”

One in three Colorado families is food anxious. In other words, you may not know where and how to eat your next meal. And it was only exacerbated by the pandemic, which forced more than 600,000 people in the state to apply for unemployment since March.

“I know it’s a tough time not only here in Denver, but for families in other countries,” said Sheriff Elias Diggins of Denver. “So it’s an opportunity to give back.”

Diggins, his agent, and their family delivered about 250 boxes of food to people’s front doors on Saturday. This is part of the Daddy Bruce (Randolph) Thanksgiving Feed a Family program.
