Our Impact

JOIN US as we Strengthen our Local Food System and Build Healthier Communities!

We ​Support Local Farmers:

  • Help beginning farmers master farming techniques and break down barriers of entry

  • Bring their stories to life

  • Manage the sales, marketing, and logistics, so farmers can focus on what they do best ... farm!

In 2019, we gave $160,000 back into the hands of local, sustainable farmers. We worked with and supported over 29 local farmers, and introduced 7 aspiring farmers into our GoFarm Incubator Program.

We Protect Environment:

  • Promote organic and sustainable growing practices

  • Reduce pollution and carbon emissions by reducing transportation miles

  • Eliminate food waste through composting, efficient ordering, donating extras to our Community Access program, and swap boxes that allow participants to only take the items they want

In 2019, we formed a sustainability committee, launched a compost collection service, reduced our plastic usage to almost none, and heavily advocated for sustainable and regenerative farming practices.

We Engage Community:

  • Distribution locations are community gathering places where like-minded community members meet, learn, and pick up their food.

  • Offer recipes, nutritional tips, cooking demos, and more that teach and inspire consumers.

In 2019, we provided fresh, local produce for over 1,150 households, offered 110 seasonal recipes and cooking/storage tips, hosted a composting class, canning and preserving class, and yoga session on a local farm. We also hosted our 5th annual Harvest Dinner, and 1st Squash Cook-off event for the community to enjoy!

We Address Hunger and Food Equity:

  • Members of Hunger Free Golden and JeffCo Food Policy Council

  • Accept SNAP and Double Up Food Bucks so people get double their SNAP money on Colorado produce

  • Provide food education and affordable food boxes for families with limited access to fresh food

  • Offer food vouchers for Centura Health patients who are food insecure

In 2019, we provided subsidized food to over 560 households through weekly, low-cost markets, and provided 25 families with discounted local food shares. We offered weekly food donations to Christian Action Guild, Colorado School of Mines, Calvary Church, and Arvada Veggie Van, and stayed active in policy work and community food access initiatives.

GoFarm works to strengthen the local food system and build healthier communities. Through our three program areas (Farmer Assistance, Local Food Share, and Community Access) we support local, beginning, farmers, train/mentor aspiring farmers, and make healthy food more affordable and accessible to the community.

Through our Local Food Share program, community members sign up for a season of local, sustainable produce, and get to learn all about the food and the farmers throughout the growing season. You can sign up for the Local Food Share here.
