Colorado Food Assistance, COVID-19 and P-EBT

COVID-19 has created a crisis situation for many individuals and families. We’ve created this page to keep Coloradans up to date on changes to Food Assistance programs through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (including Pandemic EBT, or P-EBT), as well as Food Distribution Programs through the U.S. Department of Agriculture. If you still have questions, please contact your local SNAP office.
