Tenuous connections to food

Colorado Children's Campaign

Food security was already elusive for many Colorado kids and families. Then as the COVID-19 pandemic washed over our communities those tenuous connections to food sources were suddenly and dramatically broken. In the past few weeks, advocates, providers and governments mobilized quickly to pass emergency waivers, reconfigure systems and reach out to the growing number of unemployed and hungry families. Stephanie Perez-Carrillo joins us this week to explore the need, the response and the opportunities to speak up and help our families.
