Between one and two percent of Coloradans identify as Native American, American Indian or Indigenous. It’s a population often forgotten in research and omitted from data that claims to accurately describe the experiences, perspectives and priorities of the people living in our state.
  1. The cost of housing is contributing to financial insecurity.
  2. Many Native Americans are experiencing challenges with their mental health and well-being.
  3. Native Americans perceive they are more likely than White Coloradans to experience unfair treatment.

Community members across the state are working toward a Colorado where all people have access to affordable, healthy food in their communities. The Colorado Blueprint to End Hunger partnered with the Colorado Health Institute to create The Anti-Hunger Community Toolkit. This toolkit aims to support community leaders across Colorado as they assess the strengths and gaps in their local food systems, and advocate for change by building public awareness and political will within communities.


This toolkit provides evidence-based examples, promising models, program best practices, and resources that can be used by your organization to implement substance use disorder prevention and treatment programs. Click here for more information.
