In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hunger Free Colorado began quarterly surveys across the state to find out how the pandemic has impacted Coloradans’ access to food and economic security.
Our recent statewide survey, conducted in April by Hunger Free Colorado, found 1 in 3 (33%) of Coloradans are food insecure, meaning they lack reliable access to nutritious food. Though this rate is down from the December survey, this is still a historical high for Colorado. Even more startling is the clear inequities along racial and demographic lines when examining hunger and income loss.
