AdvocateIMG 84261 Take Action: Be Part of the Solution

Let your voice be heard! Contact your elected officials and let them know that hunger should be a priority and more needs to be done at the federal, state and local levels, particularly by strengthening programs that address hunger. Send an email, call, schedule an in-person meeting or attend a town hall meeting. It truly does have an impact and is an important part of affecting policy change.

Visit our online advocacy center, and sign up for our legislative alerts. We’ll notify you when lawmakers are considering bills and other proposals that could impact our neighbors, and with our easy-to-use system, you can tell legislators where you stand on the issue.

Take the Food Stamp Challenge

Participate in the Food Stamp Challenge and try living on a limited food budget for seven consecutive days. The experience not only sheds light on what it’s like to subsist on such a budget, but it can raise awareness of existing barriers like lack of access to high-quality, nutritious food. Learn more about the Food Stamp Challenge, and how you can participate and share your experience.

Volunteer

Hunger Free Colorado and other anti-hunger organizations are currently looking for volunteers on a number of important projects. There are many ways to get involved in the fight against hunger — from helping on the front line to taking photographs! Learn more about available opportunities in metro Denver and across the state.
