Help First Bite feed BVSD Families impacted by the Marshall Fire.
As a team of moms we recognize the unique struggle families impacted by the Marshall Fire must be going through — being uprooted, losing everything and dealing with navigating sending kids to school during a global pandemic. Many of these families have found (or are working to find) replacement housing nearby so that their kids can stay in their schools and find some sense of normalcy.
We want to show them some love and community by providing them with gift cards to use at local restaurants when they are needed. We will be distributing bundles of gift cards (valued at $50) to families at the five BVSD (Boulder Valley School District) elementary schools who were most impacted — Coal Creek Elementary, Louisville Elementary, Monarch K-8, Fireside Elementary, and Superior Elementary.
Donating a gift card to a local restaurant allows families to use them when it is convenient for them and financially fuels the restaurant economy. Even as they have been navigating their own winding path over the last few years, restaurant employees and owners have still been the first to stand up and offer a hand whenever they were able. The Food is Love Campaign helps both the families and restaurants simultaneously.
Can you help feed these families?
In the weeks to come, the magnitude of the work to rebuild their homes, complete insurance paperwork and grieve the upheaval of their lives is going to be heavy. The eagerness we all feel to help now, will be very needed still in a few weeks. So let’s feed them.
