Fresh Food Connect was started in 2016 as a pilot project in Denver, Colorado in 1 zip code. The success of the pilot to engage backyard and community gardeners in hunger relief efforts led Fresh Food Connect to grow into a standing organization, and, in 2020, Fresh Food Connect launched its mobile app. Fresh Food Connect has seen tremendous growth and is currently scaling nationally.
We are tackling food insecurity by linking home gardeners with hunger relief organizations.
Download the Fresh Food Connect mobile app and indicate when you have extra produce. From there, a local nonprofit operator receives or picks up the donations and redistributes them in their local communities.
