SUMMER FOOD: STATEWIDE COLLABORATIVE EFFORT
Summer should be a fun and enriching time for all Colorado children, but for many it represents a time when they are at the greatest risk of hunger due to lost access to school meals. A collaborative effort of government agencies, nonprofit and community-based organizations, and school districts focuses on filling the nutritional gap through a statewide summer food program.
More than 500 community sites across Colorado are providing summer meals to children up to 18 years old at no cost.
