Colorado Committed in our Fresh Food Delivery
Colorado is our home.
Colorado is where we work, play, and nurture our families. At FruitRevival, it is our goal to help as many Coloradans lead healthy productive lives as possible and to do that in a way that is deeply responsible to our community in our fresh food delivery and Denver gift baskets.
By hand selecting each piece of fruit that is delivered in our boxes, we ensure amazing quality for our customers. This has also created a means to distribute thousands of pounds of produce to areas in our community lacking access to fresh affordable healthy food. FruitRevival’s ability to assist the community grows with each new customer we serve!
- Our partnerships with We Don’t Waste and Metro Caring ensure our food donations reach community points where they are most needed. Last year we donated over 23,000 pounds of fruit. See below for this year’s running donation count.
- Our Dedication to working with local vendors and farmers supports local small entrepreneurial businesses and local farms to fill our fresh food deliveries and gift baskets in Denver. (see the list of local vendors and farms we work with)
- Our insistence on recycling and re-using enable our operations to have a minimal impact on the environment. (possible link to the recycling company we use)
- Our on-going support of local and national organizations that directly impact the lives of Coloradan. (See list of all our local non-profits)
- Our company is deeply rooted in our local community
At FruitRevival, we are so fortunate that we can impact our community one apple and orange at a time.

Food Donations in Colorado
FruitRevival donates hundreds of pounds of fresh fruit each week to two Denver food recovery programs which is then distributed into areas of our community with the most need.
Hand Packing Makes it Possible
All our orders are hand packed. Each piece of fruit is selected and screened for quality. Our fruit packers only put 100% perfect, delicious fruits and vegetables into our client’s’ boxes. Anything that is bruised, dinged or visually flawed, but still tasty and nutritious, is donated. Last year we donated over 23,000 pounds of produce! The more customers we have, the more donations we generate and the more we can help eliminate the hunger that some Colorado families face every day.
