Hangry - the worst state of mind to be in! Everyone has been there at least once and knows that it leads to questionable decisions, poor outcomes and occasionally severe consequences. Now imagine being in that state every weekend, not sure if you are going to be able to eat until school starts again. For thousands of kids in Colorado, this is reality.
Luckily, this need is being addressed by the charity I'm boxing for - Food for Hope. Every week they collect healthy nutritious food to send home to elementary aged children to help meet weekend gaps in food availability. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, protein items, and 2 breakfasts/snacks are packed up and distributed by volunteers. High protein snacks are available to high school students in need.
Nutritious food is a crucial building block for healthy children, as are exercise, love, education, and emotional support. Please consider donating to help Colorado's kids be the best they can be.
