Hunger Free Hotline offers help to Coloradans navigating the state's food assistance programs

An important announcement from Hunger Free Colorado about a great resource for helping Coloradans get the food they need:

Today, Hunger Free Colorado is officially announcing that the Hunger Free Hotline is available to help Coloradans navigate the State's complicated food assistance programs. Now we are asking for your help to get the word out about this one-stop resource.

Here's what the Hunger Free Hotline offers:
  • Statewide, toll-free assistance 8:30 am-4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, at 855.855.4626
  • Trained operators that are experts in the State's complex web of food assistance programs and can ask a few high-level screening questions to offer customized help
  • Personalized guidance for accessing help from public and private programs including food stamps, food banks, soup kitchens and Meals on Wheels

Your voice makes a difference! Will you please help us spread the word by doing at least one of the following:

  • Posting on your organization's blog about this great new resource
  • Sending out a tweet through your Twitter account OR by re-tweeting the announcement that came through @HungerFreeCO this morning
  • Posting on your Facebook fan page or profile about the hotline
  • Including a paragraph or two about the hotline in your next print or electronic newsletter. (We would even be happy to write a paragraph or an article for your publication if it saves you time.)
