About Us

While most hunger assistance programs stock shelf-stable pantry items, we focus on fresh, healthy food to sustain a wholesome diet and prevent nutrition-related illnesses. Paired with educational opportunities, food rescue addresses immediate needs while building relationships and fostering a culture of empowered health.

Same Vision. New Name.

Colorado Springs Food Rescue is now Food to Power

Founded in 2013, our flagship program designed to reduce food waste while increasing food access, quickly evolved into our “organism with a mission” — multi-faceted programming working together to cultivate a healthy, equitable food system in the greater Colorado Springs community. 

So, we’ve recently changed our name and look from Colorado Springs Food Rescue to Food to Power in order to reflect the breadth of work we do more clearly.

We know that food is an essential source of everyone’s power to work, play, serve, and live. Our mission is to transform every aspect of our food system into co-powerment and equity. From food, to power.
