Colorado Springs Food Rescue takes a leading role in cultivating healthy, equitable food system in our city. At a community conversation held at Ranch Foods Direct on Wednesday, May 9, Zac Chapman and other staff shared information about their Fresh Foods Connect/Grow a Row For Community program.

Fresh Food Connect utilizes technology to solve two problems — excess garden produce, and food insecurity. If you have extra produce, you can schedule pickups via the FFC web-app. The FFC team will pick up the produce on bicycles and then distribute it in local neighborhoods facing food insecurity. Go to Fresh Foods Connect to sign up if you have vegetables growing in your yard.
