Mobile Food Markets

In the Metro Denver area, there are approximately 50 food deserts–neighborhoods without access to affordable, fresh, and nutritious foods. People who live in these neighborhoods often rely on fast food and convenience stores for food, or they have to travel long distances to the closest grocery stores, which presents barriers for those without transportation or those who have mobility challenges.

Compounding this problem, many of these neighborhoods don’t have a food pantry, or the existing food pantries aren’t able to fully meet the community need (due to limited funding, staffing, storage capacity, etc.).

To address this problem, We Don’t Waste developed a Mobile Food Market to reach further into the community, serving people with healthy, nutritious food, such as fresh fruit, vegetables, lean protein, and dairy.

The Mobile Food Market is a monthly opportunity where everyone in need can come to shop for FREE food. Attendees are able to select the items that they want and need. We cannot guarantee specific food items ahead of time, but will have a selection of produce, dairy, proteins, bakery products, and shelf-stable products.

The Market is free and open to everyone!

La despensa de comida móvil es una oportunidad mensual cuando quien sea que tenga necesidad puede obtener a comida GRATIS. Los participantes pueden elegir los productos que quieren y necesitan. No podemos garantizar que productos específicos se ofrecerán cada semana, pero tendremos una selección amplia de frutas y verduras, productos lácteos, panes, y productos no perecederos.

¡La despensa está ABIERTO y GRATIS para todos!
