Project Worthmore is excited to be partnering with Fresh Food Connect to provide hunger relief in our community through excess garden produce, as well as Denver Food Rescue. Here’s the scoop! (Also, be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for some fun upcoming fundraiser events!)
Home gardeners with extra produce from their gardens can donate their extra produce by using Fresh Food Connect: a mobile app that will give them all the information on how to make their donation easily to our organization.
Every gardener that is on the platform means that there is more healthy produce available to hunger relief centers like Project Worthmore. Together, through all our small efforts, we can have a huge impact on food insecurity.
Fresh Food Connect conveniently helps solve “the zucchini problem” by facilitating donations from gardeners and distributing it to those in need in the community. Gardeners sign up via Fresh Food Connect’s mobile app and indicate when they have extra produce, and from there, they receive all the information to make their donation easily and then it will be redistributed with a local hunger relief organization in your local community.
Your zip code may donate to organizations like Project Worthmore, a non-profit that works with refugees in Aurora, or Denver Food Rescue, a non-profit that increases health equity with Denver neighborhoods by rescuing produce that would otherwise be thrown away.
As gardeners, we know the power of growing our own food, and now it is our time to use our strength to support our community at large. We want to encourage you to plan and plant for abundance. Fresh Food Connect is here to connect you with neighbors facing food insecurity that could use your support.
Gardeners can sign up here to use Fresh Food Connect with the mobile app!
