How It Works
Fresh Food Connect licenses technology to organizations who use the mobile app to coordinate the aggregation of home grown produce to be donated and used to create positive change in the local organization’s or “operator's” food system. Gardeners sign up via Fresh Food Connect’s mobile app and indicate when they have extra produce, and from there, the local nonprofit operator receives or picks up the donations to redistribute it in their local communities. In collaboration with hunger-relief organizations, Fresh Food Connect currently facilitates the donation of food from gardens that might otherwise go to waste in twenty-three different zip codes throughout the state of Colorado. Fresh Food Connect continues to grow its impact by partnering with organizations around the country.
