The Drive To End Hunger!

Hunger exists everywhere. It is an urban problem, it is a suburban problem, and it is a rural problem, but those who are hungry aren’t whom you think.

Who We Help

Recovering Food

We Don’t Waste was created to bridge the gap between excess food and food insecurity by recovering excess food from venues, events, caterers, restaurants and major food distributors.

Who Helps Us

Always Moving Forward

We Don’t Waste continues to grow each and every year as we are committed to enhancing our responsibility to our community of addressing hunger, poverty and food waste.


We Don’t Waste Fights Hunger

As an innovative provider of food for the hungry, We Don’t Waste collects excess food from venues, caterers, restaurants, and other food purveyors and distributes the food to Denver’s under-served populations. Our efforts augment existing food and supplies needed by community-based non-profit agencies, with high quality protein, high quality produce along with wholesome, nutritional and varied “restaurant-grade” foods. Recognized by the United State Department of Agriculture’s U.S. Food Waste Challenge as a food recover organization.
