Food Matters Denver

Food Matters Logo

The Food Matters program promotes strategies that can have a significant impact on reducing the amount of food being wasted in the City and County of Denver. As part of this project, Department of Public Health & Environment (DDPHE) provides food waste-reduction tips and resources to residents and businesses to help everyone waste less food, donate more food, and expand composting efforts.

Food Matters encompasses a variety of programs and initiatives that strive to advance food systems. Reducing wasted food is one of Denver’s priorities in the Denver Food Vision, a document produced with extensive community input that sets a goal for the City to reduce wasted food by 57% by 2030.
