Who We Are and What We Do

Harvest for Hunger of Colorado, located in Snowmass Village, is a charitable foundation dedicated to reducing food waste in the Roaring Fork Valley and helping those in need. Founded by ski bums, we realized there was a disconnect between the fortunate and the less fortunate.  Many families struggle with wage disparity and a high cost of living.
It is our goal to feed the families in need with a two prong approach.  First, to build partnerships with food retailers and grocery stores of the Roaring Fork Valley and rescue unused food.  Second, every year thousands of families visit the Roaring Fork Valley on vacation leaving unused food behind.  These families, upon departure, would give us a call and we would rescue any unused food.  Finally, with our partnerships in the area we would distribute to those in need.
With the dedication of our volunteers, staff members, and partners, we strive to improve the lives of everyone who needs help within the community.

Harvest for Hunger started our route on January 26, 2021 picking up one day a week on Tuesdays and delivering directly to the mobile food pantry.  From there we have grown to pickups two days a week and now rescue food from 6 grocery stores, three hotels, and two gas stations.  Every week that we prevent food from getting thrown away or wasted is a great week and a move in the right direction.

Thank you!
