Greetings! We recently received our Letter of Determination and are working to build organizational capacity. We are few in number, staff-wise, but determined to grow. Our website could use some love; it's been holding the fort for 3+ years now. Thank you for your consideration! Dave
We are likely a bit behind the curve on UX best practices. Currently, our staff of 5 is part-time and, now that we're officially a nonprofit, we'd like to grow and build our organizational capacity to increase our positive impact and obtain the budget to include FTEs. Thank you.
We measurably reduce on-farm surplus agriculture in Colorado, support the economic stability of farmers, and increase the nutritional security of our state's residents.
Increase nutritional security in Colorado by diverting locally grown, nutrient-dense surplus agriculture into the state's hunger-relief system.
Support Colorado's smallholder and family farms via a trained volunteer gleaning corps, outreach through educational content and social media, quantitative and qualitative research, legislative-advocacy work and via collaboratively structured pilot projects addressing agricultural issues such as on-farm labor shortages in Colorado.
Reinstall food wisdom in our Colorado communities by reconnecting Coloradans with where much of their food originates.
