"In Perspective" Newsletter
As the father of a 10-year-old-boy, Justin admits he sometimes skips meals just to be sure that his son can have enough food. He works two jobs but the rising cost of living has strapped him financially from time to time.
Justin told us that he often worries about having enough money to buy food, pay bills, medical bills, and afford other necessities. "You're supposed to be able to take care of your children and have their stomachs full and make them happy. You know you do everything you can sometimes, (he pauses) sometimes, it just doesn't always work out that way." He said, "This summer was tough with the fires and hail storms."
The first time Justin came to our Community Cupboard Food Pantry he was really taken back. He was so thankful because of the food he was able to take home and prepare for his son. "This is amazing!" he kept saying.
"Offering a Hand Up,
One Person at a Time"
"You know that feeling of an empty stomach? Maybe you didn't have time for breakfast, you had to attend a meeting that was book at lunch, or you didn't have time to go grocery shopping and there is not enough food in the cupboard to make a full meal.
Do you or someone you know need emergency food assistance?

Some Kids Go Hungry Without Help from Food Pantry
Startling Facts and Statistics - Did you know?
Over 69% of all students attending Victor Cripple Creek Schools are on free/reduced meals; Over 32% in Woodland Park
And 23% Ute Pass area; 38% in Park County
This means the one meal these kids get at school might be the only meal they get that day. During summer months they may go hungry!
This thought keeps us up at night!
