Denver Food Rescue is proud to partner with Denver Urban Gardens and Groundwork Denver to bring you the Fresh Food Connect App that brings healthy fresh produce to food-insecure families, reduces food waste, and provides jobs to low-income youth.
It’s so simple! Gardeners open the FFC App to indicate that they have extra vegetables to donate. The FFC App will map out a route for youth employees to collect the vegetables using bikes and trailers. The produce will then be donated or sold affordably at youth-run farm stands, accepting both cash and food stamps.
Below you can watch a short video on the app and see all of its press coverage. Thank you Denver for all of your support on this innovative, collaborative project!
Do you live in 80205, 80207, 80210 or 80220? Fresh Food Connect is currently picking up from home gardeners in your neighborhood! Interested in donating but don’t live in an area we are currently picking up in? Register anyway so we know where to expand to next!
