Health Food for Denver Kids
Despite record low unemployment rates, Colorado is the third fastest growing state for childhood hunger. In Denver, this impacts nearly 1 in 4 kids (24%) whose families who cannot afford three meals per day. Food insecurity impacts our kids’ ability to learn and can create lifelong health impacts.
By voting YES, Denverites can help make sure kids have enough to eat while receiving hands-on experiential education and public health programs associated with farming, gardening, cooking, home economics, and healthy eating; and, when possible, supporting Colorado farms, ranches, and food businesses.
