Healthy Food for Denver's Kids Grant Opportunities

Supporting Healthy Food Access for Youth

The Healthy Food for Denver’s Kids (HFDK) Commission, through Denver’s Department of Public Health & Environment, has closed for our third funding opportunity to increase early childhood access to healthy food and food-based education in Denver. The City and County of Denver is investing in programs, projects and activities for non-profits, agencies of local government and Denver schools to improve child food security and wellness through healthy food access, nutrition education, and federal nutrition assistance programs.

Applications will be reviewed between March 4-25. The review panel will be discussing and making recommendations about funding the first week of April. Staff will be notifying organizations about the decision status of their applications April 14-15, and sending an email recommendation to the Commission and public April 22.

We encourage you to sign up for HFDK email updates to stay informed about future funding opportunities, open positions on the HFDK Commission, and to learn more about HFDK's work.  

If you have questions, please reach out to Lauren Howe (HFDK Program Administrator) at

Note that this is the third of a series of grants over the Healthy Food for Kids Initiative ten-year period (2019-2029). There will be future opportunities to apply for funds, and the focus of future grants may shift based on data gathered through evaluation, as well as Commission and community priorities.
