UpRoot Colorado is a young nonprofit (we just received our nonprofit status in March of this year) and we are currently strapped in the human-resources department.
We have a writer who will put together the content; we just need a little help getting our 2019 (Yikes!) annual report over the finish line (in full disclosure, we have not yet started it).
Thank you for your consideration!
We received our Letter of Determination in March of 2020. We have been decent-to-good to staying organized and producing materials for funders and volunteers (and anyone interested in our work, really) to read. We are woefully behind on our annual report this year, though.
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.
