DFR is thrilled to share the exciting news of our new community partner for the Healthy Choice Food Box program – the East Denver Food Hub (EDFH). This announcement comes as a result of the support from Healthy Food for Denver Kids, an initiative that aims to ensure Denver’s youth have access to healthy food options.
The Healthy Choice Food Box program is a vital component of DFR’s mission to increase access to healthy food options for all Denver residents, particularly those in underserved communities. Under this program, more than 500 boxes of fresh produce will be delivered to households with youth each month. What makes this program unique is that participants will get to choose between two different box arrangements, which provides them with greater autonomy and flexibility in choosing the fruits and vegetables that best suit their needs.
The produce in the boxes will be sourced from high-quality regional farms and will include a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables. This ensures that families receiving the boxes have access to nutritious and healthy food options, which is especially important given the nutritional challenges that many families face.

By partnering with EDFH, DFR is working to make healthy food options more accessible to Denver’s residents, particularly those with children. This collaborative effort is a powerful step towards creating a more equitable and just food system for all, and underscores the importance of community partnerships in achieving this goal.
