A total of 600 meals will be delivered this week to families pre-identified through the community resource program at DPD. Denver Police Chief Paul Pazen said there is a need every year, but certainly this year with the pandemic and subsequent tough economy.

“This is connecting and reconnecting with the communities we serve to help with these very challenging times during 2020,” said Pazen.

The meals consist of a frozen turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans and corn.

The Denver Police Department teamed up with partners including the Denver Police Foundation, Walmart, AT&T and “We Don’t Waste” to collect meals to deliver.

    As if our men in blue don’t have enough to do, and with fewer officers. I don’t want my tax dollars paying for this. I need them patrolling my neighborhood for ever-increasing property theft and car break-ins. Leave this to the charities.
