Mile High Magazine 11/14/2021 Community Table

Guest: Sandy Martin CEO The Community Table was founded in 1982 and it stated as a food pantry and it has expanded to also do a self sufficiency programing.  They are one of the largest emergency food providers in the Denver Metro areas.  Food Donation and grocery rescue are not keeping pace with the increase need that was caused by the pandemic.  Nationally about 40% of the food produced goes to waste.  Grocery rescue programs helps get these foods from stores and gets them to people who could use them.  These foods are not expired but closed to it.  They will be hosting a food drive called 25 to 25, they are trying to collect 25,000 pounds of food by December 25th.      cotable.org
