Overview


Fresh produce distributed to those in need is the heart of Grow & Give. Here you’ll find where and when your homegrown produce can be donated throughout Colorado along with other useful resources. 

Have an organization to add to our list?

As we continue to reach out to across Colorado, we know that there may be hunger relief organizations whom we have not yet connected with that could use donations of fresh produce. Have one in mind? Email us at growgive@colostate.edu or fill out a short survey at this link.

Know a gardener who’d like to give?

We know there are passionate gardeners who would donate if they knew where and when produce could be donated. And we know there are other food equity and food justice groups that are doing amazing work in Colorado. Help us connect these pieces of our larger statewide food system together – share this site with your gardening friends, family, church, school, etc! Everyone is welcome to join the effort.
