We have a deep and long-term commitment to improving food access and security across Denver Metro. We are still learning what this means for emergency meals and our work moving forward. We are using the next month to understand more about the needs of our communities, the impact of this work so far, and how we can support food security moving forward.

OUR GOAL: 250,000 free meals delivered by June 1 to home-bound families and elderly in need
In the Denver Metro Area, thousands of families, elderly, and individuals of in need and have reduced food security and access to food due to the risk of COVID-19. To address this need the Denver Metro Emergency Food Network was launched to provide safe, free, prepared meals delivered to those in need.

Founded in 2017, Bondadosa is a social enterprise that harnesses the power of Colorado's community of producers, growers, and small businesses. We serve as the front line in the fight against food injustice by utilizing technology to build a better distribution network. We also support emerging startups focused on agriculture and sustainable transportation.
DENVER FOOD RESCUE
We increase health equity with Denver neighborhoods by rescuing high-quality, fresh produce and perishable foods that would otherwise be thrown away by grocery stores, farmers markets, and produce distributors. With the help of our amazing volunteers, the food we rescue is delivered (often biked!) to Denver neighborhoods for direct distribution at No Cost Grocery Programs (NCGPs). NCGPs are co-created with existing community organizations like schools, recreation centers, and nonprofits that are already established and trusted within the neighborhood, decreasing transportation barriers.
