UPDATE | Our 7 Days to Help End Hunger campaign has wrapped up and, thanks to our generous viewers, Denver7 Gives and our sponsor CommonSpirit raised a total of $42,662, which our partners at Food Bank of the Rockies will turn into 127,986 meals. Thank you!
With the increased costs of food and many other essential items, individuals and families are struggling to pay for basic necessities like eggs, milk and bread. The USDA recently reported that 44 million Americans faced hunger last year, an all-time high since 2014.
Here in Colorado, we are seeing a similar spike in need. Food Bank of the Rockies is serving up to 23 percent more clients via their mobile food pantries, with lines of cars weaving through parking lots to pick up food.
Denver7 is taking action on this issue – and we need your help. Join us for 7 Days to Help End Hunger. From Feb. 5-11 this week-long campaign will raise crucial funds to support Food Bank of the Rockies and the work they do to nourish people facing hunger.

Every dollar contributed will help Food Bank of the Rockies meet this moment as they are distributing enough food every day for 181,500 meals. But because of rising food costs, they’re spending triple what they have spent in the past, allocating up to $2 million each month, on average, toward purchasing nutritious items.
Your support is needed. Together we can make a difference in our community.
