Hunger is a reality for 1 in 8 Coloradoan's. According to the Weld Food Bank, it costs about $850 a month to feed a family of four, that's one-third of monthly income for those living in poverty. On Thursday, the TRI-102.5 family (most of our staff) including all the people in the office you don't hear on the radio spent the afternoon volunteering at the Weld Food Bank. It was only a small part, but if felt good knowing we were doing a little to help those in need in our area. Greeley and Weld County are not immune to great need.
Many struggle to find food to eat each day right here in our backyard.
