HIT THE TRAIL TO END HUNGER THIS JULY!
Join us and “Hike for Hunger” this July! The statewide event and fundraiser, taking place July 1-31, is open to Coloradans of all ages, abilities and locations. All funds raised will benefit our mission.
Our kick-off hike and celebration is set for Saturday, July 8, from 8:30-11 a.m. at South Valley Park in Littleton. All attendees will get hiking snacks and swag.
Registration is FREE for individuals and teams across the state. 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.
PARTNERSHIP TO LAUNCH MOBILE FOOD ASSISTANCE
Hunger Free Colorado is pleased to announce a new partnership with Whole Foods Market® to launch a mobile food assistance van called Your Neighborhood Food Connection.
Since its unveiling on June 12, staff are utilizing the van to connect more Coloradans to needed food resources that will help them and their communities thrive.
PREVENT CUTS TO FOOD STAMPS IN HOUSE BUDGET
Our voter poll shows 5 in 8 Coloradans of all political stripes oppose cuts to food stamps, yet the U.S. House of Representatives is considering massive cuts that would impact millions of Americans—from children to seniors—in building a strong foundation to weather life’s storms.
Contact your Representative and let them know that food stamps matter to the health and well-being of Coloradans, our communities, and our economy!
FREE SUMMER MEALS FOR KIDS AND TEENS
Every summer, hundreds of community sites across Colorado offer nutritious meals at no cost to children and teens. Many summer food sites offer engaging activities to ensure kids have fun while getting the nutrition they need to thrive.
Colorado families can find nearby summer meal sites by using the online, interactive map at KidsFoodFinder.org, or by calling our statewide food resource hotline toll-free at (855) 855-4626.
Share this information with others in your community, so more Colorado kids can access healthy meals when school is not in session!
