Apply to be a member of the HFDK Commission

Through Ordinance 302, the Healthy Food for Denver’s Kids (HFDK) Initiative proposed to increase taxes to establish a fund for healthy food and food-based education for Denver’s youth. The ballot measure was approved by voters in November 2018 and went into effect in January 2019 for ten years. The money is being distributed through competitive grants to agencies of local government and non-profit organizations, with an emphasis on serving low-income and at-risk youth. Funding decisions are being made by the Healthy Food for Denver’s Kids (HFDK) Commission, which is made up of non-profit, government, and community member volunteer appointees who meet monthly. The Commission is staffed by the Denver Department of Public Health and Environment (DDPHE).  APPLY BY JUNE 22, 2020

There are currently two open seats on the HFDK Commission that will be filled through this application process.
