The Food Rescue Ride & Food Rescue 5k (FRR) is Denver Food Rescue’s keystone fundraising event of the year!!
This is your chance to get involved in the fight to decrease food waste, reduce food insecurity and ensure metro Denver residents have access to healthy food choices.
This amazing fundraiser includes a casual, (self-guided) noncompetitive 15- or 30-mile bike ride and/or 5k.
(Typically, we gather to ride the Cherry Creek Trail. However, this year, due to COVID 19, we are asking all participants to independently bike / walk or run a route that’s accessible and convenient for them)
All participants will be provided a map of trails recommended for safe biking, running and walking in the Denver Metro area and can be completed anytime between August 22 and August 29th. You will be encouraged to share your riding / walking / running experience on social media channels.
Virtual offerings for participants during the week of August 23-29, 2020 will include meal and drink coupons from our sponsors and raffle tickets for awesome prizes. Celebrations will conclude with a live stream recap party on August 29th.
Every dollar donated to DFR =
$7 dollars worth of fresh produce & other groceries donated throughout the week to over 20 communities in the Denver Metro Area
2 lbs of good food kept from the landfill
