Longmont Food Rescue

A nonprofit organization

Longmont Food Rescue is a hunger relief nonprofit that rescues nutritious food that might otherwise go to waste and redistributes it directly to people experiencing food, housing, and financial insecurity in our community. We are committed to co-creating an accessible food system, founded on respect and dignity for all.

We envision a food system built on the conscientious collaboration of community members who are committed to a sustainable system of food practices and removing any barriers to free food access.

Your donation helps us expand our programs in 2024 to provide more food access and nutritional support to our neighbors in need.


"When we learned about Longmont Food Rescue, we knew we wanted to be a part of an organization that helps bridge the gap between resources for food and those who need it most."

"I donate because I have personally seen the need that community members have for good fresh food, as well as seen the ridiculous amount of food waste that goes unfettered."

"The food you provide is, quite literally, a lifesaver for so many out on the street. We have countless testimonies stating the grab n' go meals we handed out on Friday staved off hunger through the weekend. It's our partnerships with Longmont Food Rescue that I believe, in my heart, save lives."

"With ALL SNAP being cut by ⅓ my snap only lasts 20 days. So I am grateful. Thank you!"

"Often we have people on particular diets, and are able to find things like gluten-free, lactose-free, and probiotics from your deliveries. We really appreciate the variety, and the prepared foods, because many residents can’t cook anymore due to disability, eyesight, and safety concerns."

"Not only did I get to fill my fridge, I was able to feed my 85 year old neighbor who lives alone, a young couple next door, and a household of specially-abled folks. Thank you so much for all you do!"


To redistribute nutritious food that might otherwise go to waste to feed people experiencing food, housing, and financial insecurity, while educating local communities about food justice.

Our core values are: reduction of hunger; being an ally for food justice and equity throughout Longmont and surrounding areas; just-in-time collaborative food redistribution; reduction of environmental impacts related to food waste; and being good environmental stewards and advocates. A foundational goal is to remove any barriers to food access (no paperwork, no-questions-asked) and reduce stigma surrounding seeking nutritional support.
