Our region has a suitable climate for growing food and a strong heritage as a ranching and agricultural community, yet 10% of San Miguel County residents and 19% of West End residents identify as food insecure.
We support local food producers to help strengthen the local agricultural economy while at the same time increasing access to local, nutritious food, with a focus on low-income families.
We increase access to nutritious food by financially supporting a variety of organizations and programs including the Fresh Food Hub, regional food pantries, Senior Meals programs, and “Totes of Hope” programs providing bags of food for area students to take home each weekend.
We serve as a convener to increase collaboration among organizations working to increase food security.
Through Tri-County Health Network, we enroll low-income individuals and families in SNAP (food assistance).
Serve over 1,200 individuals each month through three food pantries.
Serve meals to 120+ seniors weekly.
Deliver Totes of Hope to 60 students weekly.
Enroll 120+ clients in SNAP annually.
