We Believe in Food That is

Good, Clean, and fair for all.

Colorado Gives Day is Tuesday, December 7, and features a $1 Million+ Incentive Fund. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the fund, increasing impact and the value of every dollar donated. 

Giving your dollar even more POWER, an anonymous family foundation will match all donations Slow Food Denver receives for Colorado Gives Day, up to $10,000! 

Slow Food Denver is committed to the enjoyment of local food by all members of the community, seeking to create a more just and sustainable food system. We value cultivating community and connection, restoring biodiversity, celebrating food cultures, defending social and economic equality, and protecting the environment. 

Our programs and activities revolve around creating food access and awareness for healthy, local food in and around Denver, including:

1) Children and food

2) Local food producers and regional food traditions  

3) Just and sustainable food policy

Please help us continue our important work by scheduling your Colorado Gives Day donation today.
