Description
Want to help reduce food waste and increase food security in Denver while riding your bike (or car)? Volunteers are at the heart of our work picking up beautiful, edible whole fruits & veggies that would otherwise be discarded from food vendors across the city and delivering it to neighborhoods that have less access to fresh healthful foods. Our hyper-direct re-distribution model allows us to rescue more produce plus we utilize bike-power to keep our financial and environmental costs down. Plus bikes are more fun! Last year our volunteers saved over 8 tons of CO2 from being emitted into the atmosphere while riding for DFR! How it works: Every week around a rotating cast of 20 volunteers deliver food to our community partners around Denver and we are always looking for new people. We have shifts seven days a week happening morning to afternoon. Two Hour Commitment: Volunteers redistribute food by choosing a weekly, bi weekly, or once a month shift (depending on mode of transportation shifts last 1-3 hours). All You Need is a Bike (or not): We have trailers so all you need to do is connect it to your bike and start riding. We also have a few DFR bikes available for volunteers to use.
