Hunger Free Colorado hosted its first “Hike for Hunger” this year, and it was a success! The statewide event and fundraiser took place July 1-31 and about hundred people participated in some way, whether it be hiking, walking and/or fundraising to support our mission to end hunger across Colorado.
Though Hike for Hunger ended July 31, there’s still time to support the fundraiser! Make a contribution online, and join us for our wrap-up party and celebration on Tuesday, August 9, from 6-8 p.m. at the Whole Foods in Cherry Creek.
Plan to join us next summer! Hike for Hunger is open to Coloradans of all ages, abilities and locations.Registration is FREE for individuals and teams across the state, but those who fundraise and/or participate in Hike for Hunger events and organized hikes will be eligible to earn swag and awards. Participants can set their own hiking or walking goal for the month of July, and then secure pledges and support as they hit the trail to end hunger in Colorado.

We hosted our first “Hungry for Change: Day at the Capitol” on Friday, March 18. Even with the inclement weather, more than 70 advocates participated at the Colorado State Capitol, sharing their stories and experiences with legislators to shift the perception of hunger and ensure every Coloradan has the fuel they need to thrive. Read more and view photos from the day.
Weren’t able to participate but still want to use your voice? Visit our online advocacy center to sign up for alerts and stay up-to-date on what’s happening at the Colorado State Capitol. We’ll notify you when lawmakers are considering bills and proposals that impact the nearly 1 in 7 Coloradans who struggle with hunger.
Hunger Through My Lens, a photovoice advocacy project led by real-life experts and facilitated by Hunger Free Colorado, aims to shed light on the reality of hunger in our communities to encourage critical dialogue and create change. Participants from the Denver metro area, San Luis Valley and Roaring Fork Valley are sharing their personal stories through photos and quotes that are on display via traveling exhibits. View current and upcoming exhibitions.
NOTE: Some of the participants, along with the project manager, may be on-site during select times at each exhibit to answer questions and provide information about the project.
