View the calendar below.
Our mobile outreach program connects families to needed food resources, such as food stamps (federally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), local food pantries, meal sites and other community options that offer access to affordable, healthy food. The mobile program helps individuals and families apply for food stamps and receive one-on-one guidance through the process.
Its services include:
- Providing one-on-one help with the food stamps application process
- Screening for all federal nutrition programs
- Offering referrals to food pantries and free meals
- Giving information on child and senior nutrition programs
- Answering any questions about food assistance
- Connecting to community food resources and other partnering agencies
Hunger Free Colorado can start your application, even if you do not have documentation with you. Later, documentation will be needed for your interview and throughout your application process.
Download a list of verification documents you may need to save time and help the application process go faster. Please bring all that apply with you, when possible.
