    At the beginning of 2019, HFG began working with an independent consultant, Sophie Oppenheimer, to write a comprehensive food assessment report for Golden based on the data already collected in order to:

    1. Better understand the barriers to food access in the Golden community

    2. Identify the resources and opportunities that exist to provide affordable and accessible healthy food to the Golden community

    3. Identify potential solutions for reducing hunger and food insecurity

    The findings and recommendations presented in this report, completed in June, will guide HFG in determining their priorities and selecting the best approaches for addressing hunger and food insecurity in Golden.
