Food Rescue Ride
August 25, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Denver Food Rescue’s BIG event of the year – a casual bike ride in Cherry Creek State Park. Ride 15 or 30 miles or try the 100 pound trailer pull! Then join us for a post ride celebration with food, drinks, and prizes. It’s easy fun that builds community & raises big money for Denver Food Rescue!
DFR’s mission is to produce health equity with Denver neighborhoods by increasing access to fresh whole fruits & vegetables. They do this by utilizing edible produce that would otherwise be thrown away from grocery stores, farmers markets, & distributors. The food is taken directly from the food donor to our No Cost Grocery Programs (NCGPs) – often with bicycles! NCGPs are located around the Denver Metro area at frequented, established, and trusted locations like elementary schools and community centers. They are co-created, managed, and led by the residents and organization themselves! This ensures the programs are inclusive, culturally appropriate, and best suite the needs of the community.
