Boulder Food Rescue aims to create a more just and less wasteful food system. We facilitate the sustainable redistribution of healthy food that would otherwise be wasted to low-income communities, by bicycle. We work with communities to facilitate their own food redistribution and create decentralized systems to bypass barriers to food access.
Our work envisions a world in which everyone has equitable access to healthy food.
"I first heard about BFR after seeing an article in the Daily Camera about 6 months after the organization formed. I was immediately impressed with the work of this unique group: feeding the hungry, reducing food waste and saving the planet! I went to one of the organizational meetings, and I was even more impressed by the intelligence, energy and clear commitment of the BFR crew. I signed on to help then and have been an active member since."

"I love the work that BFR does. Bringing good and edible food to the community makes me feel treated with dignity, not as a poor person. BFR works very differently to the food banks." -Resident of one of our communities
These amazing gifts of free food been delivered to our neighbors has been a blessing. Especially now with such high prices of food. Our volunteers take the time to look through food that's still in perfect condition. Once again so grateful so save money and feed our families & neighbors. Thank you BOULDER FOOD RESCUE" -Estela, No Cost Grocery Program Coordinator
"I have learned A LOT from BFR in regards to genuine engagement and participation, collaboration, justice and respect, and humility. I adore BFR: its staff, its mission, its approach. It has been impactful to have those experiences as I have gained memorable life and professional lessons."
