Our Mission:

To cultivate a healthy, equitable food system in the greater Colorado Springs community.


We do this through two programmatic focus areas:

Food Access

We use a "direct redistribution" model in which surplus healthy foods from local supermarkets, backyard gardens and cafeterias is brought directly to 20+ non-profit and community-driven programmatic sites for distribution. CSFR minimizes transportation time, engages an expansive network of volunteers, and co-creates healthy food access programs, with over a million meals redistributed since 2015.

Food Education

We believe that food insecurity is not separate from the context of our wider food system. Through project-based youth internships/employment, school-based food rescue programs, & events, we aim to foster youth leaders in food innovation and promoters of food equity in our community. Youth-led projects have ranged from community cookbooks to the management of healthy food distribution programs.
