AECOM Denver MLK Jr. Day of Service
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. recognized the power of service. Observing the MLK Jr. federal holiday through service is a way to begin each year with a commitment to making our community a better place.
One issue that has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic is food insecurity.
- Pre-pandemic, 10.5% of all U.S. households experienced food insecurity during 2019 - this has more than doubled to 23% in 2020.
- 80% of food banks are serving more people than they were at the same time in 2019, with Black, Indigenous, and Hispanic communities being disproportionately impacted.
To commemorate MLK Jr. Day of Service (January 17, 2022), help combat food insecurity in our community by donating to Food Bank of the Rockies!
