🍏 Reflecting on Boulder Food Rescue’s work in 2019 and kicking off 2020


🍏 Reflecting on Boulder Food Rescue’s work in 2019 and kicking off 2020

Here are a few of the efforts we made in 2019 to increase food access in Boulder:

  • Hit a milestone of redistributing 3 million pounds of food since starting in 2011!
  • Increased participatory opportunities to enable community members to be a part of BFR. This increases knowledge and expertise in our decision-making processes and ensures that these participants have a place at the table to develop their own food access programs.
  • Added 6 new No-Cost Grocery Program sites. We now have 29 No-Cost Grocery Program sites and 11 additional recipient sites. A full list of our partners can be found here.
  • Grew Fresh Food Connect, a program and web app that provides home gardeners the opportunity to donate produce that is distributed to low-income community members. Over 3,000 pounds of fresh, homegrown produce was redistributed to early childhood education centers and No-Cost Grocery Programs.
  • Published a Participation Framework to support others who want to create more participatory opportunities in their organizations, which will increase food access across all of Boulder. Stay tuned for workshops and new published research in 2020.
  • Expanded the Food Rescue Alliance – a peer learning network for other food rescue organizations – to 22 other cities and published the second version of our Package Deal. This is a guidebook for people to start their own food rescue, including new chapters about food justice and participation.

Denver’s Kyle Clark did not find any rat infestations at sight of camping ban sweep, notes city provided old photos as proof


Denver’s Kyle Clark did not find any rat infestations at sight of camping ban sweep, notes city provided old photos as proof

In case the headline and style are not clear, the city of Denver may not be telling the truth here, but rather, looking for a means of clearing out the homeless with laws unrelated to the actual issue which is homelessness. In this case, Clark’s team did not find any rats.

The slow and steady zoom-in starts at 50 seconds, follow the point through:

When one critic fairly notes that the other competitor TV news stations in Denver reported on evidence of rats, showing off photos of the rats provided to the news organizations by the city, Clark points out that the photos were discovered to be from a prior clean-up, but not this one.
