HUNGRY FOR CHANGE 2017
Registration is now open for the Hungry for Change Summit 2017! The event will be held Wednesday, Sept. 27 at the Cable Center in Denver. We’ll be covering topics such as racial justice in the anti-hunger fight, local advocacy resources, data-driven messaging, and the State Plan to End Hunger.
It will be a full day of cross-sector learning with nonprofit organizations, educators, faith community leaders, government representatives, foundation and corporate leadership and community members. We hope to see you there!
DONATE YOUR EXTRA PRODUCE
Gardens across the state are filled with crops of tomatoes, beans, zucchini and many other fruits and vegetables. Don’t let your produce go to waste or end up in a compost pile, because it can serve a greater purpose.
Produce for Pantries connects community, school and home gardeners across the state with local food pantries. Call our statewide food resource hotline at (855) 855-4626 to find a nearby food pantry that accepts fresh-food donations.
FOOD STAMP RULE CHANGE BENEFITS COLORADANS
Good news! More Coloradans who are facing difficult life circumstances and financial challenges will be able to keep their food stamp benefits under a recent set of rule changes unanimously approved by Colorado’s State Board of Human Services. This includes those who are experiencing homelessness.
Thanks to the Colorado Center on Law and Policy for partnering with us and coordinating with the state to adopt these new changes, so more residents can access the fuel they need to thrive and weather life’s storms!
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING HIKE FOR HUNGER
Thank you to everyone who participated in Hike for Hunger! We raised $28,500 to ensure Coloradans have access to the fuel needed to thrive.
This would not have been possible without the support of many hikers, teams, companies, and donors across Colorado. Thank you to everyone who hiked and donated to end hunger in our state!
