Food Rescue fundraises in fashion

Posted By on Mon, Aug 29, 2016 at 3:51 PM

In many ways, Colorado Springs Food Rescue's Harvest Celebration this past weekend at Venetucci Farm was reminiscent of Seeds Community Cafe's Sustainability Summit fundraiser in mid June. 

Sunlight poured into the farm's barn, Seeds once again dished healthy and delicious food and the day's dialogue centered around creating a healthy food system, in part by stopping our excessive food waste as a global society. 

CSFR executive director Zac Chapman says the event helped raise more than $6,000 for the nonprofit, which in part will go toward new school program initiatives. Watch this newly released promotional video to hear more about that and other CSFR efforts. 



And here's a batch of pics that highlight a lot of youthful enthusiasm and community care:
