IFCS | A Denver Area Food Bank and More to Nourish Lives

PROVIDE HOMEGROWN PRODUCE

Does your garden have food to share? Fresh Food Connect partners with IFCS and other hunger relief nonprofits to connect gardeners with community members that are experiencing food insecurity. Using their app, gardeners can schedule drop-off donations of homegrown produce at IFCS and we will distribute it to hungry households in our community through our Food Market.

Fresh Food Connect provides an easy way for gardeners to participate in hunger relief efforts. Download the app and start donating your backyard bounty today!

Fresh Food Connect uses a mobile app to streamline our communication with you, our local home and community gardeners.

The process is simple: download the free app and indicate your location within one of the above zip codes, designated for IFCS produce donations. When you have extra produce, use the app to let us know when we can receive your drop-offs for redistribution to the community.

* If your address is not within one of the 13 zip codes listed above, but you would like to donate food to IFCS, call us to arrange a garden donation drop-off outside of the app. Thank you!

Please note: IFCS does not provide garden donation pickups.
