Our Food Rescue Program brings in close to ½ million lbs of food per year that would otherwise end up in landfills. Our staff pick up contributions from local retail sites 6 days per week (Monday through Saturday). These donations from corporate donors like Wal-Mart, City Markets (King Soopers), Albertsons, Durango Natural Foods, & Nature’s Oasis include fresh meat, dairy, bakery items, produce & non-perishable canned goods (perhaps logos from these donors). This food, that might otherwise be thrown away, is distributed to local residents struggling with food insecurity.
If you are part of a business or group that would like to become part of our Food Rescue Program, please give us a call at 970.375.2672 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
All food that is donated through our Food Rescue Program is gleaned to sort out food not considered adequate for human consumption. Our operation is set up to ensure there is absolutely ZERO food going to the landfill. We have regular animal farmers who pickup unusable items to be used for feeding their livestock. As a last resort, all other unused items go in to compost for our community garden. If you are interested in receiving more information on picking up our unusable items for livestock feed, please email us at email@example.com.
