The Food Bank for Larimer County and our partner agencies are on the front lines of hunger when it comes to food security advocacy. We hear the stories. We understand the struggles. And we are committed to finding solutions. We want state and federal lawmakers to understand the issues facing the people we serve, and how they can help. Because our voices are stronger together, we coordinate our advocacy and public policy work through Feeding Colorado, the state association of the five Feeding America food banks serving all of Colorado and Wyoming.
Reach out to your elected officials and let them know why you care about ending hunger and why you support food security advocacy.
Feeding Colorado’s policy agenda is tied to our mission of supporting people experiencing food insecurity and reducing the number of people needing food assistance, driven by information from neighbors who experience hunger, supported with data and analysis; external of partisan politics; focused on the areas in which our involvement will have the most impact, and coordinated with other coalitions and organizations to determine what unique voice we may bring to an issue.
Members of Congress make key decisions about federal nutrition programs including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP), the National School Breakfast and School Lunch Programs, and more.
Join us in our support of federal legislation that will improve the lives of people in Larimer County who are facing food insecurity and our abilities to support them.
From the local to the national level, public policies specifically aim to alleviate poverty and the burdens faced by food insecure families around the country. But many policies have shortcomings or limitations.
Feeding America’s Policy & Benefits research explores how well public benefit and charitable programs work to support families in poverty, as well as the kinds of coping strategies that families exercise to manage their resource constraints.
Visit the Feeding America Policy & Benefits Research website to see detailed articles on current legislation that matter to food banks and other organizations that focus on supporting and assisting people experiencing food insecurity. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to the following:
If you’re filing an individual or joint state income tax return, you can support food security advocacy simply by checking a box! Choose Feeding Colorado from the voluntary contributions checkoff list to ensure that everyone in our state has consistent access to food.
