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.
We deliver quality food to over 75 agencies to boost their available food supply for free
Food distributors, sports venues, caterers, schools — you name it — all donate their unused food, risk free!
Companies, organizations and individuals who ensure the sustainability of We Don’t Waste and allow us to provide services at no cost to donors or recipients.
A simple monetary donation or lending a hand through volunteering can make a difference in addressing vital hunger needs in our community.
