Take Action

Urgent Action Needed to Support Healthy School Meals for All!

Healthy School Meals for All is a popular and effective program, but it faces a funding shortfall due to high participation and changes in federal reimbursement rates caused by rising food prices. The Joint Budget Committee of Colorado’s legislature has extended coverage for free breakfast and lunch, but additional revenue, through a referred ballot measure, is needed to prevent future program cuts and ensure the sustainability of free meals. Your voice is crucial – let’s ensure every child has access to nutritious meals at school!

Urge your legislators to support Healthy School Meals for All!

Additional Ways to Advocate

We Don’t Waste participates in the Colorado Blueprint to End Hunger Policy Committee. All legislation supported by the Blueprint is a result of committee votes.

Make sure you’re registered to vote. Elections are a great way to have your voice heard in support of policies impacting food access and the sustainability of our community.
