In Boulder County, Colorado, the sun shines over 300 days a year. Nature is our church, and the foothills of the Rocky Mountains are our cathedral. We work hard and play harder. Our residents make up one of the most educated populations in the country. And innovation is the lifeblood of our business community.
And then, there’s the FOOD. We take food very seriously, and we do it WELL. We talk about food ad nauseum. We care where our food comes from and what is in it. We LOVE to eat good food. We grow it. We cook it. And we share it with friends. We know our local farmers. Our restaurant owners are local celebrities. The Farm to Table movement has its roots in our backyard. We are often called “The Foodiest Community in America,” and we take great pride in that moniker.
But we have a secret.
Amidst all of this abundance and discussion of food, 1 in 6 residents of Boulder County is food insecure.
