Since 2014, Colorado Springs Food Rescue has collaborated with the city of Colorado Springs, the Colorado College Sociology department, local non-profits, and professors of UCCS in devising research for our operations. Some of our work can be found below.
City of Colorado Springs Intersectional Maps
The term "intersectional" refers to how systems of marginalization have mutually reinforcing factors; we cannot study "food insecurity" in a city without studying racial demographics, accessibility to vehicles, neighborhood poverty, etc.
By clicking through the various maps below that were created by CSFR Coordinator & Sociologist Madison Sink, in conjunction with the City of Colorado Springs, you will be able to interactively explore how food insecurity, race, accessibility to motor vehicles are intersectionally related.
Potential Recipient Site Analysis
Created by sociologist and CSFR Coordinator & Sociologist Megan Gillespie, this report has provided our organization with knowledge of the "highest need" recipient locations for nutritious food.
