Achieving Better Student Mental Health Through Nutrition
 It seems simple – upgrade the kitchens. And in many ways, it is. But what many may not realize is the impact that something as simple as an updated kitchen has in our schools and in our community. The Littleton, Colo., community understands the relationship between a child’s nutrition and mental health. With those students and the future of the community in mind, Littleton Public Schools (LPS) took on the responsibility to improve food quality, accessibility, and students' experience across
the district.
Basic needs such as food, water, warmth, and rest must be satisfied first before you can begin to achieve your full potential according to Maslow’s
Hierarchy of Needs. Littleton Public Schools understands this and engaged Flintco to renovate the kitchens at Centennial and Wilder Elementary with freezer and cooler upgrades as well as serving line improvements at Euclid Middle School and Peabody Elementary.
Flintco is honored to be involved in this project, which is a vital step to tackling the mental health challenges some students are facing.
Flintco strives to provide a place where our kids are healthy, receive a great education, and can thrive. By completing this kitchen and nutrition services project and through supporting the Littleton Public Schools Foundation, we are proud to be making a difference one child at a time.

  Hunt Midwest and McWhinney Announce Plans for 78,000-Square-Foot Senior Living Community in Centerra
Hunt Midwest is under contract with McWhinney, master developer of Centerra in Loveland, to purchase a 4.7-acre site planned for a two-story, 78,000-square-foot assisted living and memory care community. The Capstone at Centerra will be located on the north west corner of McWhinney Boulevard and US 34. The community plans to offer 56 assisted living apartment homes and 32 memory care suites, with accommodations for as many as 114 residents in the northern Colorado region. Construction is slated to begin in early 2021 with a grand opening planned for spring 2022.
Integral Senior Living (ISL) will provide management services for The Capstone at Centerra. Residents of
the community will have full access to ISL’s nationally recognized programs such as Vibrant Life®, Generations
Memory Care, and Elevate® dining and support from a team of compassionate, highly trained associates committed to providing personalized care.
Hunt Midwest, in collaboration with ISL Ventures, a division of ISL, and Leading Light Development and Construction Consulting, has worked to identify sites
in areas throughout the country where the demand for senior housing is unmet. The Kansas City-based developer currently has Capstone communities in Royal Palm Beach, Fla. as well as Gallatin and Mt. Juliet, Tenn.
Hunt Midwest has selected Pi Architects to lead the overall design of community and Olsson to perform land planning and civil engineering for the project.
