Fresh Food Connect
In Metro Denver, one in four children faces hunger. At the same time, tons of food is thrown away every day. A collaboration among Denver Food Rescue, Denver Urban Gardens, and Groundwork Denver has produced Fresh Food Connect, which uses technology to address these dual issues by connecting back yard and community gardeners with communities in need, reducing both hunger and food waste. in 2015 residential gardeners in the 80205 zip code helped launch a pilot version of the app which was largely successful!
Fresh Food Connect recently received $100,000 in funding to continue developing the app through a grant from Impact100 Metro Denver, a women’s giving circle housed at the Denver Foundation!
