DeLaney Community Farm + Yu Meh Food Share
Project Worthmore is a Colorado-based nonprofit working to foster community and self-sufficiency while increasing the quality of life among Denver-area refugees. Their various programs provide essential services to newcomers and the 60,000 refugees that already call the area home, helping them learn English, enroll their children in school, find employment, navigate the healthcare system and more.
DeLaney Community Farm — a collaboration between Project Worthmore and Denver Urban Gardens — is a five-acre farm that supports refugees through community-based food security programs. Dedicated farm shares provide fresh, mostly organic produce to the Yu Meh Food Share Program, which distributes the produce three times a week to refugee households.
Project Worthmore will receive a $45,000 grant from Simply Organic in 2023 to expand operations at DeLaney Farm and continue to distribute fresh, healthy produce.
