FROM OUR PARTNERS AT THE FOOD BANK FOR LARIMER COUNTY

Hunger in Larimer County often goes unnoticed. We live in a great community, so it’s easy to overlook hunger when it doesn’t touch you or someone you love. That’s because hunger hides behind closed doors. It lives in the home of a single mother who skips dinner to make sure her children have enough to eat. It lives in the apartment of the grandfather who has to choose between a meal and taking his medicine. It lives in the bedroom of a young child who has to make it all night without food until the next school day when she knows she will be fed.
