Mission Statement

Rocky Mountain Mutual Aid Network is a volunteer-run organization, working in solidarity to increase food access across the Denver metro area for people who self-identify as disabled, immune compromised/high risk, and/or seniors.

Description

Rocky Mountain Mutual Aid began operating in 2020, in response to a need in our community during the Covid-19 pandemic. Thanks largely to our food rescue partner, Joy's Kitchen and our ever-growing crew of dedicated volunteers, we delivered free groceries to over 800 households in 2022.

Every Friday our volunteers deliver groceries to approximately 15 households across the Denver Metro area to families cannot otherwise access food.
