Want to use your voice to help strengthen your community and ensure all Coloradans have access to nutritious food?
The Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) will host a listening tour in nine counties—from the Eastern Plans to the Western Slope—that’s open to all Colorado residents this August. The CDHS leadership team will attend each session and gather community input to help inform the direction of the department and priorities for the coming year.
This is a great opportunity for Coloradans to raise the profile of hunger and food stamps. You can share what hunger looks like and why food stamps matter in your community; talk about the challenges and successes within the current administration of the program; and discuss possible solutions with key decision makers.
With community members and local organizations demonstrating broad support for food and nutrition assistance, our collective voice can show how much the administration of food stamps matters to Coloradans and why it should be on CDHS’s list of priorities.
Here’s how you can take action:
- Attend one of the listening sessions. This is the most powerful way to engage with the Colorado Department of Human Services’ leadership team. (View the dates, times and locations.)
- Submit an online comment or question to their Facebook event, if you cannot attend in-person.
- Amplify your voice in other ways, such as by tweeting to @CO_CDHS and using #EndHungerCO, sharing information and graphics via your social media accounts, writing a letter to the editor, and/or discussing the issue of hunger and viable solutions with others.
If you do plan to attend one of the meetings or take action in another way, please let us know. We can send an action toolkit that includes possible messages to share and questions to ask, as well as supporting data, facts and images. Email us at email@example.com.
Thank you for your continued support to create a hunger-free Colorado!
