The food pantry assistance grant program is set to repeal on June 30, 2023. The act extends the food pantry assistance grant program through July 1, 2024.
For the 2022-23 state fiscal year, the act appropriates $3 million from the general fund to be used for the purchase of Colorado agricultural products and agricultural products that hold cultural significance for indigenous first nations people, or for other cultures or subcultural groups, including the ways in which those agricultural products are produced.
The act allows up to $100,000 annually of the appropriation to be used to hire a nonprofit entity to provide technical assistance to a grant recipient to train food pantries and assist in the location and purchase of Colorado agricultural products.
