Your voice makes a critical difference in the decisions of our legislature and the future of our state. Make sure to take time to reach out to your legislator and continue this conversation!
Whole Foods’ Community Giving Day
Benefits Hunger Free Colorado
Attention shoppers: You helped raise nearly $69,000 for our mission to end hunger, simply by shopping at a Colorado Whole Foods Market on Monday, Oct. 24, 2016! The funds will allow us to purchase a new mobile unit, so we can connect more Coloradans to needed food resources.
THANK YOU to Whole Foods Market for their generosity and partnership to ensure no Coloradan goes hungry!
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!
STAY TUNED FOR THE 2017 EVENT!
Hunger Free Colorado hosted its first “Hike for Hunger” this summer, and it was a success! The statewide event and fundraiser took place July 1-31 and about 100 people participated in some way, whether it be hiking, walking and/or fundraising to support our mission.
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.
