Healthy Food for Denver:
Kids

 

Denver has record low unemployment rates and yet Colorado is the third fastest growing state for childhood hunger. In Denver, this impacts nearly 1 in 4 kids (24%). When families cannot afford three meals per day, it hurts  our kids’ ability to learn and be healthy 

By voting yes, Denverites can help make sure kids have enough to eat while receiving hands-on education and health programs for farming, gardening, cooking, home economics, and healthy eating. When possible, this supports Colorado farms, ranches, and food businesses too.

Healthy Food for Denver:
Food Deserts

 

Some families in Denver take two buses and travel over an hour – each way – just to get affordable, healthy food for their family. This impacts half of Denver’s low-income neighborhoods . These food deserts unfairly impact  seniors, kids,  people with disabilities making it harder for struggling families
to get by.

In a city with as much development as Denver, there is a better way. By voting yes Denverites will help create local jobs and attract healthy grocery stores to Denver’s food deserts.
