About


Comrade Co-op began humbly as a small breakfast burrito operation running out of a drink cooler, with the intention of providing unhoused Denverites a hot breakfast. The more time we spent out in the unhoused encampments, the more food donations started coming our way. Within two months, morning burrito distribution had transformed into an all-out effort to provide hot meals to our unhoused neighbors. Because a large portion of the food we receive is destined for the landfill, food waste mitigation is a foundation of our work. We believe that the intersection of racism, food waste, houselessness, hunger, and capitalism cannot be overstated. Comrade Co-op serves to fight these injustices through community building and skill-sharing. When we come together, we are fully capable of taking care of one another.
