|Commemorating the spirit and generosity of "Daddy Bruce" Randolph, The Epworth Foundation and its generous sponsors have distributed over ALL PROCEEDS GO TOWARDS PRODUCING THANKSGIVING BASKETS FOR THE COMMUNITY.
Each year an average of 37,000 people are fed through the Denver Feed-a-Family program and over 350,000 pounds of food are distributed. This annual program costs over $200,000 to produce, with 93% of that being food costs. No funds go toward any overhead or general operating costs for The Epworth Foundation or any of its partners.

To Feed a Family
To feed a family: for $30 you can provide a basket with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, macaroni and cheese, cake mix, jiffy mix, and cranberries: enough for a family of 8, with a little left over for the pantry.
As in past years, we will need hundreds of volunteers for this event, in which the work -- and the fun! -- begins at midnight Friday and doesn't end until Saturday evening. If you volunteered in past years and left an email address we will send a reminder.
Nominations for baskets opens Tuesday, October 11, 2016
"You can't beat love," Daddy said. "Nothing beats love. If you give just one thing,
you get three things back.
That's why I do it."
Those words, from Denver's own "Daddy Bruce" Randolph, summed up his generosity and giving spirit as he served food to Denver's hungry beginning several decades ago. This annual event commemorates his memory and his spirit of giving. Since 2003, the Epworth Foundation and generous community sponsors have carried on Daddy Bruce's tradition by serving Denver's neediest families.
