Description

An estimated 600,000 Coloradans don't know where their next meal is coming from. This year, Colorado Farm to Table provided 438,773 individual servings of fresh produce to feed families in need throughout our state. Will you please help us keep our friends and neighbors from going hungry?

Organization History
In 1996, career farmer Tony Madone, Jr., cultivated a two-acre garden plot in Salida, Colorado and donated all of his harvest to the hungry. He says it "just felt right" to provide people in need with fresh produce at no cost to them. Tony's commitment eventually grew into what is now Colorado Farm to Table (CFTT) - a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization. As the only non-profit that combines a viable farming operation with an anti-hunger mission, CFTT provides wholesome, nourishing food to thousands of families throughout Colorado.

CFTT's vision is to sustain a mission farm rooted in community with compassion for the hungry, where every Coloradan in need has equitable access to fresh, nutritious Colorado-grown produce.

We are driven to cultivate key values that nurture our growth and development as an organization:

- Practice stewardship and embody the ideals of place, community and service through caring for and sharing our natural agricultural resources.
- Collaborate with local, state and national partners to advance hunger relief, agricultural education and sustainability.
- Engage youth and people of all ages in volunteer farming experiences to grow high quality, nutritious produce for hungry families in Colorado.
