Support Child Nutrition Reauthorization

Imagine what Colorado could be if every child had enough nutritious food to eat. More children would grow up healthy and strong, succeeding in and out of school. Every child in Colorado needs an adequate amount of healthy food to thrive and achieve their potential. Summer meal and school lunch programs help ensure Colorado kids get proper nutrition for healthy development, as well as the energy and focus needed to learn. Soon, Congress will consider reauthorization of all federal child nutrition programs, so now is the time to tell Congress to invest in the health of Colorado kids and a better future for all Coloradans. Learn more and take action now.

Colorado Peak Bagging

With 53 peaks reaching 14,000 feet or higher, Colorado has some of the best hiking in the country—and summer is the perfect time to get outside and experience it all. If you want to “bag some peaks” this summer but aren’t sure where to start, check out these great tips (via Bearfoot Theory) on The 5 Best Beginner Fourteeners in Colorado.

Vegan Pesto Pizza

June 17 was officially Eat Your Vegetables Day, but we think every day is a great day to add more veggies to your diet. Find recipes for scrumptious veggie-heavy dishes—like this Fresh Summer Vegan Pesto Pizza (via One Green Planet)—on the LiveWell Colorado Pinterest page.
