Donate your backyard bounty to BFR.
Grow too much? Do your neighbors have enough of your prize zucchini? Simply deliver your surplus produce to one of the drop stations below. It will join an already-scheduled BFR food distribution.
Drop stations (coolers) are maintained by volunteers in their communities. To optimize freshness and minimize work for the volunteers, please deliver on the preferred days of the week noted below.
Please do not deliver produce that is overgrown or overripe. For donations of non-produce backyard food products, like eggs, honey, or cottage goods, please email [email protected].
Growing Gardens -1630 Hawthorn Ave, Boulder, CO 80304
If driving, park in the parking lot off of Hawthorn Ave. If biking, you can bike right up to the cooler! From the barn near the parking lot on Hawhorn, head west towards the community gardens (toward the mountains). You’ll find a gazebo behind a blue shed near the center of the community gardens. The cooler is located in the gazebo. Donations preferred on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
Glen Willow – 311 Pearl St. #5, Boulder, CO 80302
Navigate to 311 Pearl. You’ll see the beautiful community center facing Pearl St. The cooler is stored on the porch of a private residence just west (towards the mountains) of the community center (Unit #5). Donations preferred Wednesdays-Fridays.
