FEEDING STUDENTS IN SUMMIT AND LAKE COUNTIES, COLORADO
Smart Bellies is working to reduce childhood hunger and increase access to healthy food options on the weekends. We deliver weekly bags with breakfast, lunches and snacks for the kids, produce for the whole family, and monthly snacks to our local schools. And we have a ton of fun doing it!
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, more than
18 million children may face hunger in 2020. Hunger knows no boundaries.

A Coloradan, on average, only receives about $1.39 per meal in food stamp benefits, making it a challenge to put healthy food on the table for themselves and their family.
