Fresh Food Connect Winter 2019 Update
Collecting excess garden produce from one zip code with plans to add several more Denver zip codes when Fresh Food Connect was our first $100,000 grant recipient just 31/2 years ago, FFC now is national, with a CEO whose is seeking to expand to 425 zip codes over the next 3 years. That projects out to 35,000 gardeners using the app that our grant upgraded! A new upgrade is in the works thanks from additional donated funds.
Fresh Food Connect Fall Update
Fresh Food Connect, our 2016 $100,000 grantee, has been expanding its pick up area from home gardeners (maybe you saw the written and TV pieces on adding the Wash Park area) with this year’s poundage expect to be way up, has a new food stand which is pay what you can for the produce collected and has completed its licensing agreement allowing them to share their app in other communities. The expansion beyond Denver was not anticipated in their proposal but certainly intensifies the impact of our investment.
