DENVER — Food that would typically be thrown away is being rescued and used to feed the hungry in Denver.

We Don’t Waste gathers excess food from venues, caterers and restaurants and then distributes the food free of charge through mobile farmers’ markets in food deserts, areas underserved by traditional grocers.

The non-profit serves Denver the Front Range.

Photojournalist Drew Smith visited one of the distribution events and has filed this report. Watch the video in the player below:
