Care and Share’s agency network serves diverse populations of the hungry across southern Colorado, including impoverished children, the working poor, low-income seniors, the sick, the disabled, the homeless and other at-risk populations. The recent Feeding America and Mathematica Policy Research study, Hunger in America 2010, found that:
• 75% of those receiving our food are living below the federal poverty level.• 27% of those served by Care and Share are children.• 9% are elderly (this figure is perhaps low as this group is often under identified).• 25% of those served by Care and Share are homeless.• 42% of those we serve make choices between paying utility bills and buying food.• 44% make choices between paying rent and buying food. • 33% make choices between paying for medical care and buying food.• 21% of households we serve have at least one member in poor health.• 35% of the households served by Care and Share have at least one working adult.
