Food for Hope delivers children from hunger in Adams County, Colorado.
Research indicates that even mild malnutrition experienced by young children during critical periods of growth impacts their behavior, school performance, and overall cognitive development. There are thousands of children in Adams County alone that are not receiving enough to eat.
Our mission is to empower and nourish the future of the community by providing vital nutrition to children in need. Each student enrolled with our program receives nutritional assistance throughout the school year.
Over 14,000 students in the Adams 12 School District are dependent upon school for adequate nutrition throughout the week. Roughly 1,200 of these children are classified as homeless. Our goal is to fill the hunger gap that presents itself every weekend. Ultimately, we hope to provide every child in need in the Adams 12 district with healthy meals every weekend of the school year. In the future, our hope is to address the need in other school districts as well.
