UpRoot Colorado

We work to measurably reduce food loss in Colorado through gleaning, experiential education, and nonpartisan legislation. Our goal is to co-create a Colorado foodshed that is more mindful, humane, self-sustaining and connected, where everyone has access to healthy, nutrient-dense food, where hunger pangs are in the past, and where markets value farmers for what they are: a cornerstone of society.
