A large and broad collection of Colorado leaders, including hunger and nutrition nonprofits, health care providers, state agencies, local county governments, schools, community-based organizations and individuals experiencing hunger launched an effort this week to end hunger across the state.
The coalition launched their work with a report, The Colorado Blueprint to End Hunger, which lays out a five-year effort of clear and actionable strategies to end hunger for all Coloradans by building on past successes and employing innovations in local communities statewide.
"This is, quite simply, an imperative for our state. To have a single Coloradan - particularly our kids and our seniors - go to bed hungry or worry about how they will eat the next day is unacceptable," said Governor John Hickenlooper. "Letting our kids go hungry. Making our seniors chose between medicine and food. This is not who we are."
