Mission Statement

Hunger Free Colorado, a statewide nonprofit organization, connects families and individuals to food resources and fuels change in systems, policies and social views, so no Coloradan goes hungry.

Organization History

The nonprofit was launched in 2009 from a merger of the Colorado Anti-Hunger Network and the Colorado Food Bank Association, with funding support from The Denver Foundation and Kaiser Permanente. Hunger Free Colorado brings a unified, statewide voice to the issues and solutions surrounding hunger, with a goal to ensure all Coloradans have access to affordable, nutritious food. We focus on systemic and sustainable solutions to end hunger through programming, outreach, policy and advocacy work using the lens of our four core values: community, innovation, partnership, and nutrition.

To effectively fight hunger and create lasting change, we provide a comprehensive range of efforts designed to end hunger in Colorado by identifying and directing systemic change, targeting grassroots outreach, and helping people in need. The focus of our work is assisting Coloradans weathering a life-storm including children, seniors, and those with disabilities.
