Statewide effort to eliminate food insecurity!

CO Blueprint to End Hunger Logo

The School Nutrition Unit serves as a key partner in addressing Goal 5 for the Colorado Blueprint to End Hunger. For more information about Goal 5, including meeting notes and strategies, please visit Maximizing Child Nutrition Workgroup 5

In collaboration with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's (CDPHE) Evaluation Unit, School Nutrition is conducting a statewide needs assessment geared towards all sponsors operating Child Nutrition Programs including the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, Afterschool Snack Program and/or the Summer Food Service Program. This will be used to inform a cohesive implementation plan aimed at increasing student participation in and access to these important programs.

Your feedback is critical to ensuring Colorado's Child Nutrition Programs reach all of our students and families, and we thank you in advance for your continued willingness to provide insight and feedback as we work towards the creation of appropriate training and resources. If you would like more information about this effort, please reach out to Gabriella Warner, Blueprint Project Manager via email or at 720-827-5144.
