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.


What We Do



From Local Food Retailers and Families

Harvest for Hunger collects from Grocery Stores and Food Retailers at least two times a week encompassing the entire Roaring Fork Valley from Glenwood Springs, Carbondale, and El Jebel, up to Snowmass Village and Aspen.  We also rescue food on demand from visiting Families.

Our Rescue Partners

Who We Collect From

Harvest for Hunger is very lucky to have so many local grocers, hotels, restaurants, ski resorts, and individuals willing to donate.  These include City Market, Clarks Market, Roxy's Market, Limelight Hotels, The Little Nell, Louis Swiss Bakery, Kum & Go Gas Stations, and Individual donations.


What We Do



To Our Community

The main goal of Harvest for Hunger is feeding our community.  This is an issue that touches many lives in the Roaring Fork Valley. Through our distribution partners we are able to reach those in need and keep our community fed.

How Our Food is Distributed

Harvest for Hunger distributes food to our local partners who distribute it to our local communities.  We distribute to the Crown Mountain Park Mobile Food Pantry on Tuesdays, Buttermilk Mobile Food Pantry on Wednesdays, and the Foodbank of the Rockies on Thursdays.  As well as the pantry at the Mid-Valley Family Practice.

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!
