WE DID IT!
With the support of You're the Cure Advocates like you, the Colorado House of Representatives passed increased funding for Colorado's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Incentive Program, called Double Up Food Bucks Colorado. This program matches SNAP benefits for Colorado-grown fresh fruits and vegetables, making sure families can bring home more healthy food, while supporting local food producers.
It's estimated that nearly one in six American households experienced food insecurity last year. As it has everywhere, the pandemic has been hard for numerous Colorado families. Unemployment has increased and along with it many are struggling to afford enough food. This measure will help those that need assistance obtain more locally produced fresh fruits and vegetables.
Thank you for raising your voice and being part of the relentless force for building longer, healthier lives in Colorado!
