THE COLORADO BLUEPRINT TO END HUNGER

The Colorado Blueprint to End Hunger is a multi-year plan to end hunger for all Coloradans. It was developed, with funding from the Colorado Health Foundation, by individuals and organizations from across the state who are working on or experiencing hunger in their own homes and communities. Key elements of the plan include efforts to maximize enrollment of income-eligible Coloradans in both the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Woman, Infants and Children Food and Nutrition Service (WIC), which focuses on mothers, infants, and children under five years of age. The Blueprint also calls for boosting participation in Federal Child Nutrition programs and expanding the number of Coloradans who can access the food they need through community-based organizations.
