About Us

We Don’t Waste was founded in 2009 in an effort to address these important issues. Today, we are one of the largest food recovery organizations in Colorado.

We Don’t Waste focuses on perishable items including fresh produce, lean proteins and dairy products. We supplement food provided by food assistance programs with fresh food reclaimed from our food donors. This allows our recipient organizations to consistently serve the hungry with healthy and wholesome meals without increasing their operating costs.

Since 2009, We Don’t Waste has recovered over 11,500,000 meals for the hungry.

RECIPIENTS

DONORS
