HOW DID BGOLDN BECOME BGOLDN?
In a time of crisis, a simple question arose… Can we help the underserved while helping our restaurants and the local economy? The answer was BGoldN. Our mission is to help the underserved while supporting the local economy by feeding residents in need and supporting local restaurants during the COVID-19 crisis. Our greatest challenge is sustaining the program. As the need grows, we are left not knowing if the funding can match the need a week, a month or 6 months from now.
Currently we offer the following:
Grab N Go restaurant meals for anyone in the Golden community
Restaurant meals for the unhoused
Delivery of restaurant meals for senior living residents
Delivery service (grocery style) for anyone who is quarantined
Food bank at Calvary Church for the Golden community
“The challenges we face can only be overcome by working together.”
Laura Weinberg, Mayor
“I’ve been furloughed from my job and hopefully back to work soon. My son and I have been grabbing breakfast and lunch from Bell every day. Thank you BGoldN and all of the local restaurants that are working to keep Golden residents fed during this time!
“Thank you so much for doing this! I lost my job due to COVID and since I have no money to spare, eating out is not an option. I have gone to pick up lunch for me and my sons twice now and it is so much fun.
“I cannot change the harsh economic reality that many people will face. But I can do my part to help people eat and help people stay employed. That is what BGoldN is about and that is why I am donating one of my biweekly paychecks per month.
