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.
