Program Director
Colorado Springs Food Rescue

We are happy to announce that Colorado Springs Food Rescue is an awardee under our 2017 Jerald Bridgman Education Fund. This grant is to support their 2017​ ​Full Circle Food Team Development program.  FCFT Interns/mentors manage a no-cost healthy food distribution program at Atlas Preparatory School, providing 15,000+ pounds of healthy groceries to over 2,000 unique individuals.

We would also like to thank those who helped fund the 2017 grants with their generous donations of time, facilities and great food: The Warehouse Restaurant, The Margarita at Pine Creek, Adams Mountain Cafe, the Sourdough Boulangerie, Tapateria/Pizzeria Rustica, AspenPointe Cafe, and The Flying Carrot.

And if you want to support Slow Food Pikes Peaks 2018 Education Fund grant cycle and support our community growth in good, clean, and fair food, you can donate right now on our home page, or join us in the fall at our fundraiser!
