Market Night Provides Residents in Need

With Free Food!

[Westminster, Colorado]: The City of Westminster is heeding the call to help residents who need support with securing food for themselves, or their family. The city is launching a new program called the WestyRISE Restaurant and Food Security program.

The program has two components:

  • Daily, restaurant-prepared meals for residents over the age of 60 who are struggling to put food on their tables, and
  •  Weekly food boxes distributed at a “Market Night” for families in need. Boxes will include fresh fruits, vegetables, breads, and a $35 gift certificate to a Westminster restaurant for a future meal.

“It’s designed to simultaneously help feed people and support local restaurants through mid-December,” said Innovation Coordinator Gregg Moss. “This is a win for our residents in need and a win for our businesses in need.”

Meals for seniors will start being delivered the week of October 19. The meals are prepared by a local restaurant under the supervision of a dietitian and delivered once a day, five days a week. The Senior Hub, a non-profit agency that assists aging adults and families in need in Arapahoe and Adams counties, is coordinating this part of the program and people interested in registering for meals can call 303-426-4408.

Market Night starts Wednesday, Oct. 7, and runs through mid-December. Food box pickup will take place at City Park Recreation Center (10455 Sheridan Boulevard) in the upper circle drive on Wednesdays from 4-6 p.m. Weekly Market Night updates and detailed information is available at 303-706-FOOD (3663).

This program has been approved and supported by City Council and the city’s Economic Development Department, the program is funded by the federal CARES Act.
