Last year, the inaugural year of our partnership with Grub Club, there were more than 2,400 students in Jeffco Schools who didn’t have a permanent home or a hot meal to go home to at night. As educators we know this affects their ability to perform in the classroom and as human beings we know what this can do to a student’s spirit.
So, JCEA, JCCSEA, and Jeffco PTA have decided to partner up again with the Jeffco Action Center to help ensure these students have food. Last year in December we collected over 30,000 items of food and hygiene products to ensure that our homeless students have what they need to come to school ready to learn. We are doing it again the GRUB CLUB is back!!
The donation drive this year will be from December 8- January 15. We will deliver all of the items to the Jeffco Action Center on Saturday, January 16.
Below are resources to help you be successful in planning for collection in your building or community. Reach out to let us know how we can help too.

The link above should include everything you need to help you get started in building your plan around this year’s Grub Club collection. Included are a planning template, talking points, and other handouts to use in your buildings. We had great success last year with the Grub Club food drive and want to make sure this year is even better! Please work with leaders (JCEA AR, CSEA Building Rep, Principals, etc.) to ensure that you have a solid plan for collection.
