Next Week Speaker - Lion John Love


Lion John Love, Executive Director, has lead the agency for over 20 years. In 2011, he received the University of Michigan's Humanitarian of the Year award. He also volunteers at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and has served on the City Council of his local municipality.   

Capitol Hill Community Services fulfills its mission by serving hot lunches at different locations in central Denver Throughout the week. Our hot meals are based on donated community food and are prepared with the appreciation that this may be someone’s only meal of the day.

In addition to very good and nutritious meals, we also serve dignity and respect to our clients. With a greeting table, individual placements and some music, we try to make the meal something more than a soup kitchen experience. Our hot lunches offer a temporary refuge from hard life on the streets and an opportunity to experience some kindness.
