Rescate de Comida de Boulder
 
Organizador de  La Cumbre de ¡La Comida adelante! 2018
 
El Rescate de Comida de Boulder trabaja para crear un sistema alimentario más justo y con menos derroche. Lo logramos a través de la redistribución sostenible de comida saludable dentro de comunidades de bajos ingresos, a la vez que nos educamos entre nosotros sobre la justicia alimentaria. Nuestro poder viene de 150 voluntarios activos que pedalean para redistribuir 1 300 libras de frutas y verduras al día ¡por bicicleta!

In particular, we are focused on direct rescue and redistribution of fresh and healthy food that would be discarded otherwise. The flexibility of our model, and the direct “just in time” delivery mechanism, allows us to focus on small gaps left behind by larger food rescue organizations and food banks. We work hard to accomplish our task with minimal environmental impact and right now more than 80% of our food transportation is accomplished via human-powered means (bicycles and trailers).

Together, along with 9 other nonprofit organizations in Colorado and around the US, we make up a peer learning network called Food Rescue Alliance. We share next and best practices, documents, resources and ideas, and collaborate where we can to have a greater impact in our communities.

If you’d like to know more about our organizations, you can check out our websites or shoot us an email at info@boulderfoodrescue.org or info@denverfoodrescue.org.
