Food pantries across Colorado are preparing for a major increase in the number of people needing food assistance, and your help is needed more than ever before.
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) emergency allotment benefits, put into place during the COVID-19 pandemic, ended on March 1. This impacts approximately 554,000 Coloradans.
On average, this will result in a $90 per person, per month reduction SNAP benefits. A family of four, for instance, could see a decrease of $360 per month in essential food assistance. Coupled with inflation, this is a devastating blow to Coloradans facing hunger
Feeding Colorado, an association of the five Feeding America food banks serving Colorado, is bracing for a major increase in need. These food banks distribute food through signature programs like mobile pantries and a network of 1,200 Hunger Relief Partners and food pantries across Colorado. Right now, these food banks are purchasing more food than ever before.
Please consider making a financial gift to the food bank serving your community by clicking one of the donate links below or by giving to another hunger relief organization in your community. With each gift, you are helping us provide nourishing food for neighbors who need help rebuilding their lives when circumstances make it difficult to make ends meet.
