Breaking Down Barriers & Building Up Community

Colorado’s population has grown to more than 5.5 million people. Approximately 12% struggle with hunger and 14% live below the federal poverty line of $24, 250. Thirty percent of Colorado kids live in neighborhoods without parks, community centers, or safe sidewalks, limiting their physical activity.

In this video, LiveWell’s community partners talk about these and other barriers to healthy eating and active living throughout Colorado, community-driven solutions, and how we can and should continue to work together to build a culture of health that extends to every resident in every part of our state.
