Supporting Colorado Gardeners for Hunger Relief

Fresh Food Connect is a mobile app connecting gardeners with extra produce to organizations that distribute food to their communities. The process is simple: Gardeners download the app and indicate when they have extra produce. From there, local nonprofit operators receive or pick up the donations for redistribution to the communities they work with.

Colorado State University Extension Grow & Give was created in 2020 to address food insecurity in Colorado by connecting backyard and community gardens to food donation sites across the state. They are here to provide resources to help you both ‘Grow’ and ‘Give’ part of your garden’s bounty to those in need.

Why we are partnering

  • Simple and flexible

    We both know how generous gardeners can be and want to provide the tools and resources to make donating easy and fun
  • Maximize Impact
