40%, first of all, of the food in this country is thrown away.
1 in 6 Coloradans are food insecure.
1 in 4 children are food insecure.
The mission is to improve the community and the environment by
recovering unused food and then providing it to those folks who are
less fortunate in our community.
In the last year, we put out 33 million servings of food.
That equates to about 11 million meals.
Now, we have expanded our operation with a mobile food market and we
selected the Globeville Elyria Swansea area because of the fact that it is a food desert.
The first day we had 112 families that we served.
And it's all free.
At the end of the day, it's very satisfying to know that in some way we have been able
to reach out into the community and provide those who are less
fortunate, with nutritious food.
