SEE PHOTOS, STORIES OF EVERYDAY LIFE WITH HUNGER
With a click, a camera captures a moment and experience to share with others. Nine local women have taken photographs to share, but their stories are personal and show how hunger affects their families and our communities.
They are all participants, the real-life experts, of a new project called Hunger Through My Lens that aims to shed light on the reality of hunger in the Denver metro area.
Visit their traveling exhibit at SAME Café in Denver through Dec. 31.

TAKE ACTION: $40 BILLION IN SNAP CUTS STILL ON TABLE
More than half a million struggling Coloradans experienced a reduction in SNAP benefits last month, meaning tighter food budgets and possibly fewer meals. There are still $40 billion in SNAP cuts on the table, as Congress debates the future of the Farm Bill, which could mean deeper cuts to the vital safety-net that offers nutritional support to families, children, veterans, seniors and those who are disabled.
What can you do? Contact your Colorado delegates and urge them to protect SNAP.
