We Don’t Waste currently relies solely on grants, donations and the generosity of food service providers throughout the city. And Arlan and his crew appreciate people spreading the word.

Where Does the Food Come From
Many of Denver’s top venues, caterers, restaurants and food producers contact We Don’t Waste when they have unused fresh food that would be thrown away. Food contributed includes fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods, and restaurant grade prepared meals.
Where Does the Food Go
Organizations such as Father Woody’s Haven of Hope, Denver Inner City Parish, Beacon Place, SafeHouse Denver, Harbor Lights, The Gathering Place and many others receive the donations. The food is provided to each participating organization, and auguments their food needs, helping to reduce their food costs and optimize their budgets.
Currently, we support Denver’s community-based agencies that provide food to the underserved. They serve more than 5,000 meals to men, women and children every day in our community.
People in Need
A diverse group of people — children, the elderly, homeless, veterans, the working poor, single-parent families, the physically and mentally challenged, those struggling to make ends meet — benefit from the contributions to the participant agencies.
