Our cohort of over 200 volunteers re-distribute an average of 1,300 pounds of produce daily from 23 food donors to 36 and 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.
Thank you to our grant funders and individual donors that make this work possible!
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.
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.
