The Colorado Blueprint to End Hunger is an aggressive, five-year plan to end hunger for all Coloradans. Developed by broad and deep coalition of individuals and organizations from across the entire state, including those who are working on and experiencing hunger in their own homes and communities. If you share our audacious belief that hunger can be a thing of the past in Colorado, this is the job for you.
Key elements of the Blueprint 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.
- Increase participation in Federal Child Nutrition programs
- Grow the number of Coloradans who can access the food they need through community-based organizations.
- Develop a groundswell of Coloradans advocating to end hunger in our state.
