Hunger exists in every county in the U.S., affecting 48 million Americans including 15 million children! An estimated 7,690 people in our service territory – or roughly 15.53% of the population – are food insecure. This is a rate higher than both the state (13.91%) and national (15.21%) averages.

Check out some of the cool things on this calendar that you can do to help raise awareness or combat hunger.


Tri-Lakes Cares is a community based, volunteer supported resource center whose purpose is to improve people’s lives through emergency, self-sufficiency and relief programs. Since 1984 we have been meeting our client’s most basic needs while helping them move towards self-sufficiency. As the only food pantry and human services organization located in and serving the Tri-Lakes region of Northern El Paso County, we are a critical resource for those in need.
