Denver's Frontline Hunger-Prevention Organization
Metro Caring is Denver’s frontline hunger-prevention organization. Simultaneously fighting hunger and promoting sustainability, Metro Caring annually receives and redistributes over 2.3 million pounds of nutritious food (72% fresh) - a majority of which would otherwise have gone to waste. Metro Caring’s holistic approach to ending hunger includes a free, fresh-foods market, nutrition and gardening education, and tools for self-sufficiency such as the Seeds for Success job-training program, financial literacy education and state-wide ID procurement. Over 300 weekly volunteers contribute to daily operations.
The mission of Metro Caring is to provide nutritious food to hungry families and individuals while promoting health and self-sufficiency.
