Community Cupboard of Woodland Park, Inc.

Our children next door are going hungry. This thought keeps us up at night! On an average 42.5% of all students attending Woodland Park School District, Cripple Creek, Victor, Park County, and Ute Pass schools are on free/reduced lunches. So when schools out - what are they eating?

Description

You know that feeling of an empty stomach? Maybe you didn't have time for breakfast, you had to attend a meeting that was booked at lunch, or you didn't have time to go grocery shopping and there is not enough food in the Cupboard to make a meal. The feeling of running on empty is too often a reality for so many in our community that do not always know where their next meal is coming from. Without adequate nutritious food, people, especially children don't have the energy to focus, learn, grow, and thrive. We need to make sure that no child, adult, or senior ever runs on empty. Through-out the fall and winter months join us in our "Fighting Hunger" network of food banks across this state and raise YOUR voice around the issue of hunger during our feed the hungry campaign monthly channel.

The easiest way to get involved is to take your favorite social media and post a plate selfie! Post yourself holding an empty plate saying "Today, I made a difference" share it, post it, and tag your local food pantry - www.wpcommunitycupboard.com and help raise awareness for our neighbors struggling with hunger.

When school is out - what are they eating?

We have launched the "Hunger Free Lunch" program where children can pick up lunches throughout the summer! A child needs food to feed their mind and fuel their bodies.
