Food Pantry Donation

Through the concerted efforts of various entities within Denver South High School and beyond (weekly deliveries of fresh fruits, yogurt, milk, and vegetables from We Don't Waste and non-perishable items provided by Food for Thought and Food Bank of the Rockies) our school community has been knit together by food.   The Denver South Food Bank provides our students with access to quality food items weekly and their families monthly access to the Denver South Food Pantry. Using a client-choice model, our students/families are able to shop for what they need and when they need it, in an effort to eliminate food insecurity at Denver South.  

Donations can be made online by clicking the "food bank donation button" above or by check sent to the following address with Denver South Food Bank written on the memo line:

Denver South PTSA c/o Denver South High School 1700 E. Louisiana Ave. Denver, CO 80210

In kind donations (see below) are accepted and can be delivered to the Main Office at Denver South High School. 

**Although our needs change monthly, there are non-perishable items students request on a regular basis.    Without community support, we would not be able to provide these items.   


Canned Peaches & Pineapple                                      Toothpaste

Canned Chicken & Tuna                                            Toothbrushes

Kraft Macaroni and Cheese                                         Bars of Soap

Small Jars of Jam                                                        Small Bottles or Pods Laundry Detergent

Cheerios                                  Small Bottles of Dish Washing Liquid

Pancake Mix                                                     Reusable grocery/shopping bags

Bags of dried RED Lentils                                       Oatmeal

Cooking Oil                                                 Deodorant

At this time, we are very well stocked with canned vegetables, rice, pinto beans and body wash. 

All personal care items must be sealed & unopened.   We cannot accept used items; they will be tossed.

**In most cases students are carrying  food home on the bus;  smaller sizes work best.   NO glass jars please; too heavy for students to carry home.

Please drop items off in the Main Office at South High School.    Contact Jaclyn Yelich, with questions.


In addition, from time to time, students and families at the our school are in need of certain items for their household and family members.  The PTSA supports the Food Pantry, but now we have the opportunity to support individual needs as identified by the administration.  We all have gently used items that are no longer needed and that would benefit another. What's in your closet?  Or maybe you want to purchase something new.  Either works!  The Denver South community is compassionate and our support can help students stay in school for a bright future.
