DENVER FOOD ASSISTANCE TASK FORCE
In Denver County, only 64 percent of those eligible to receive food stamp benefits through the Food Assistance Program receive them.
To address this gap and develop solutions to connect more Denver residents with needed food resources, Denver Human Services and many other partners, including Hunger Free Colorado, are participating in the Denver Food Assistance Program Task Force.
The Task Force will develop an action plan and recommendations to address the opportunities to increase enrollment in food stamps and expand food access and affordability.
SUPPORT US ON COLORADO GIVES DAY
Everyone is at their best when they have enough to eat, but there are many life storms that make it difficult for Coloradans to access healthy food and leave Coloradans missing out on the fuel needed to thrive.
Our work supports these individuals and families through community engagement, political advocacy for strong and effective programs, and our statewide, bilingual food resource hotline.
Schedule your end-of-year or holiday gift now, and help us ensure no Coloradan has to worry when or where they’ll get their next meal.
COLLEGE STUDENT HUNGER ACT OF 2017
National findings reveal that almost half of all college students experience hunger while attending school, with first generation and non-white students being the most at-risk of lacking access to healthy food and a safe place to live.
The College Student Hunger Act of 2017 addresses this issue by expanding the eligibility of students to participate and utilize food stamps to purchase groceries. This expansion will ensure more students have the food and nutrition needed to fuel their bodies and minds, which is tied to stronger academic performance, individual health, and overall well-being.
