UpRoot Colorado (UpRoot) is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving the Colorado food system and working to increase food equity throughout the state.

We increase the nutrition security of Coloradans by harvesting and redistributing surplus, nutrient-dense foods while supporting the resilience of farmers. We collaborate with farms who have surplus produce and engage community volunteers to help harvest and distribute food to local hunger-relief efforts. By creating opportunities for experiential education, we aim to increase cultural food wisdom, which we define as an understanding of, and appreciation for, the true value of food—a life-sustaining resource—and for those whose vocations it is to bring it to our tables.
