Longmont Food Rescue brings the food & recipient nonprofits setup their own no-cost grocery markets!

Recipients and Participatory Models: The food gets delivered to recipient sites we partner with and is typically used within 24-48 hours. We provide food to day shelters and food pantries that serve the homeless and low-income folk, but more importantly, we work with individuals who struggle with food insecurity themselves.

We work with community leaders at low income senior housing sites, individual housing sites and family housing sites as well as after-school programs and pre-schools. This participatory approach enables community leaders to really be at the forefront of actualizing their own food security. Individuals run what we call “Grocery Programs” to set up a food-pantry type situation in their own community rooms, but they are in charge of how, when, and where and we just support them on the back end by building strong relationships with individuals to have the most say in how their programs should run.

We also provide food to special events for charities on occasion and provide some food to pay-what-you-can meals, and low income housing cooperatives.
