About

Our Mission

We believe universal access to healthy, nutritious food is a fundamental human right. Nourish Colorado is transforming Colorado’s food system to ensure all Coloradans have equal and abundant access to nutritious foods from sustainable sources. Through advocacy for better policies, statewide initiatives, and partnerships with communities, and statewide and national organizations, Nourish Colorado is creating a new food paradigm. We’re actively challenging the status quo and championing a future-forward food system that equitably feeds and nourishes ALL Coloradans.

Our Guiding Values

1. Access to nourishing food is a basic human right
2. A person’s ability to feed themselves and their households all the nourishing food they want should not be determined by economic conditions, race or ethnicity, or where they live
3. Food systems must be transformed to work best for those who have been and are intentionally marginalized in order to create lasting and sustainable change for all
