Benefitting We Don’t Waste, the Denver-based nonprofit that recovers quality, unused, mostly perishable food from grocery stores, catering companies, food distributors and others and distributes it to communities and organizations in need. Presented by CoBank.
Over 50% of Colorado households with children do not have regular access to nutritious foods and one in four adults in Colorado report having to cut back or skip meals because there wasn’t enough money for food (Hunger Free Colorado). We Don’t Waste collects good food that would otherwise end up in the landfill and provides it to community-based nonprofit agencies serving children, individuals, veterans, families, and those experiencing homelessness. In 2020 alone, We Don’t Waste distributed 24 million servings of food via its mobile markets and distribution to more than 100 partners.
