We Don’t Waste was founded in 2009 with a mission to make an impact on food waste. Today, they are one of the largest food recovery organizations in Colorado.
We Don't Waste prioritize rescuing perishable items such as fresh produce, lean proteins, and dairy products. Not only do these foods have a shorter shelf life, but their production has the greatest impact on the environment. As an added benefit, they’re able to provide families and individual with fresh foods, which can be very difficult to access, particularly for families living in food deserts.
And they’re able to supplement the food assistance provided by our partner nonprofits. This allows nonprofit recipient partners to consistently serve people with healthy and wholesome foods without increasing their operating costs — and allows them to spend more of their precious financial resources on other programming, rather than purchasing food.
