Election Day is fast approaching! Once votes have been cast, the people elected serve you. As those who have been directly and indirectly impacted by hunger, it’s our job to help them understand what hunger looks like in Colorado. Support from our elected officials can help us better connect people to needed food resources, as well as strengthen the well-being of our community and our state.
The training will cover: everyone’s role in helping our local and state officials be great policy-makers; how to introduce yourself or your organization to elected officials; what does it mean to become a go-to resource for your state and local elected officials; how to host a site visit; messages that resonate; and more!
Join us for this training on how to educate your elected officials and create champions for your cause! It’s a great opportunity to start cultivating relationships with your elected officials ahead of our “Hungry for Change: Day at the Capitol” on Feb. 7, 2017.

Colorado State Capitol
More details coming soon!
We hosted our first “Hungry for Change: Day at the Capitol” on Friday, March 18, 2016. 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.
More than 250 community leaders and advocates participated in the sixth annual Hungry for Change Summit, hosted by Hunger Free Colorado and presented by Western Dairy Association. The sold-out convening was held on Sept. 27, 2016, at The Cable Center in Denver, with Kevin Concannon, USDA’s Under Secretary for Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services, as keynote speaker. It was a great day of sharing best practices, exploring innovative approaches to overcome barriers and fostering even more collaboration to ensure no Coloradan goes hungry.
Stay tuned for details about the 2017 Summit! Sign up for our news and alerts to stay up-to-date on this event and future opportunities.
STAY TUNED FOR DETAILS FOR JULY 2017!
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.

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.
