21 Sep Community Impact – Hunger Initiative
\Since 2006, the Junior League of Fort Collins has worked to address the issue of childhood hunger in Northern Colorado. Through its Hunger Initiative, the Junior League partners with the Food Bank for Larimer County and its Nourishing Network program to provide snacks to schools that serve children in need. During the 2021-2022 program year, Junior League members delivered more than 75,000 healthy snacks to 18 schools where at least half the student population qualified for free or reduced meals.
The program coordinates with school staff to provide individually wrapped snacks to help a hungry child maintain focus throughout the day. As part of the partnership, the Food Bank procures and stores the snacks while League funds the program and delivers them monthly to area schools.
