Mobile Food Bank

Our Mobile Food Bank was started in June 2012. Utilizing a one-ton van, we started with a few locations. In May 2016 we expanded our program. We were fortunate enough to receive a donation of a two-ton truck. With the help of other generous donors, we were able to build the truck that is being used today. It is estimated that each load of food in the truck has a value of $4,500. We typically serve 2 sites per load of food.

Totes of Hope

Every Thursday and Friday, we distribute 3,000 lbs. of food to students who are at risk of not eating on the weekends. Currently we are serving Swansea elementary school and Johnson elementary school. This program distributes about $240,000
of food annually. Metro Ministries has maintained this program for the past 7 years.

Sidewalk Sunday School

Sidewalk Sunday School started in June 2012. It is our core belief that children are hungry spiritually as well as physically. We provide age appropriate children’s church to children in various low income housing projects around the Denver metro area. This program runs all summer long.
