About the speaker

For July’s world-wide theme of “END”, Christine Alford, Executive Director of the Denver Food Rescue, will be joining us! Christine has been a Five-Points resident for the past 10 years, and during this time, she has worked in over five schools within the Denver Public Schools system. She has supported over 80 students and their families by maintaining positive relationships and providing them with the resources needed to become self-sufficient.

Christine first became involved with Denver Food Rescue about three years ago when she began running a No Cost Grocery Program with a partnered organization, Heart and Hand. Shortly after, she joined Denver Food Rescue’s Board. Christine is excited to continue to provide healthy food for communities in and around Denver while educating others on healthy choices, food systems, and sustainability.

We are excited to learn from Christine about the creative approach they are taking to ending food waste around Denver and how they are supporting families in need of healthy food options.
