Our cohort of 200+ volunteers distributes an average of 1,200 pounds of produce daily from 22 food and beverage donors to 39 recipient sites, mostly by bicycle.
These recipient sites include 31 No-Cost Grocery Programs at low-income housing sites, schools, and daycares. This program encourages resident leaders to distribute food in their own communities and creates participatory systems that bypass barriers to food access.
Our food donors provide our recipient organizations with healthy, fresh food that is soon-to-expire or overstocked, directly impacting those experiencing food insecurity within the Boulder community.
Businesses and organizations: Bona Coffee Roasters, Boulder County Farmers Market, Colorado Pet Pantry, Conscious Coffees, Growe Foundation, Google, Growing Gardens, Milk & Honey Farm, & Uproot Colorado
No-Cost Grocery Program Recipients
At our No Cost Grocery Program sites, we work with the community leaders who are in charge of how, when, and where to distribute the food in order to actualize individuals’ own food security. Learn more here.
