As Denver’s largest hunger relief organization serving families, Metro CareRing depends on the generous contributions of local growers like Happy Belly Farm. Limited access to fresh fruits and vegetables has caused many of our low-income neighbors to rely on cheap, empty calories found at fast-food restaurants and convenience stores.
Educating, enriching and fulfilling lives through sustainable and chemical-free farming
Who we are: At Happy Belly Farm, we are committed to Nourishing Bellies in Need through sustainable, chemical-free farming to provide those less fortunate with healthy, whole foods. Our passion to unite families and our community thrives in every crop we harvest. We invite you to join us in our vision to ensure that every belly is a Happy Belly, well-nourished and fulfilled.
Each and every fruit and vegetable that flourishes from Happy Belly Farm is given to a food bank, shelter or community support system in an effort to cultivate a healthy regime for not only those who receive the harvest, but also for the benefactors that are giving their time, hands and donations for a greater good . Our mission is to educate, enrich and fulfill lives—ultimately connecting our communities to join together in a food revolution to end hunger and further educate ourselves in the benefits of healthy living.
