While we’re on the ground every day, recovering and distributing food, We Don’t Waste believes that advocacy plays an incredibly important role in creating positive change. From local green initiatives to federal nutrition policies, it’s important to have your voice heard!

Policies we support

SB23-178 Water-wise Landscaping In Homeowners’ Association Communities

In addition to this bill’s water conservation and biodiversity preservation efforts, this bill would require HOA’s to allow vegetable gardens in the front, back, or side yard of a unit owner’s property. As stewards of natural resources, and advocates for local, sustainable food systems, We Don’t Waste is in support of this bill.
