DENVER (CBS4) – The Denver Community Food Access Coalition is one of the groups distributing 1.8 million food packages to Colorado families. They’re full of fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy and meat, but not a letter signed by Donald Trump.

The Farmers to Families Food Boxes are sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. According to the DCFAC, each box contained a letter from the President reading in part “consider wearing a face covering when in public.”

The DCFAC believes this statement is not as definitive as the CDC’s guidelines, which read, in part, the “CDC recommends that everyone wear a mask over their nose and mouth when in public.” So the DCFAC organizations removed the letters from the food boxes before distributing them to Colorado families.

The Executive Director of the Denver Food Rescue said, “politicizing the one lifeline Colorado families have left during this health pandemic and economic crisis by putting these letters in food boxes is shameful and degrading.”

The DCFAC says the food boxes have been helpful, but they believe the best way to support Coloradans right now is by expanding the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, known as SNAP.

    This is so not right. You have no right to take that letter off, hate for Trump is way out of control.
    no right or authority. This is not over President Trump has apart in this food distribution. Not out of pocket but our taxes and I approve of helping the poor and hungry.

    1. Richard Guernsey says:

      The letter is simply not necessary and rubs in what we already know. It has nothing to do with Trump. For god’s sake he didn’t even write the letter – it just has his name on it.

  2. Gail Lindsey says:

    What else is the DCFAC stealing?

  3. Chip says:

    The hate runs deep despite the Leftist bumper sticker that says, “Love Trumps Hate.” Yeah, sure, Lefties.

    They’ve still got their panties in a wad that Trumps signature was on the stimulus checks.

      Are you one of those goobers that actually believe the money came out of his pocket? Of course you are. I always say they can’t do anything more to shock me, but the level of dummy is stupefying.

      1. TomTancredoFan says:

        Oh Judith, you poor, pathetic soul. Many people kill their brain cells with alcohol or drugs, but I’m afraid yours have died from inactivity. You should use the few dozen you have left to explore avenues involving fingerpaints.
