We had a great time in Denver, CO

Thank you!

Thursday March 19th, 2023


On March 19th, DIG gathered at Birch Road in the Highlands for an inspired evening of food, drink, and reconnecting.

Since 2006, the Denver community has supported DIG’s work around the world, and we have been able to do so much good because of the seeds you’ve planted.

After some pandemic time away, we were thrilled to go back to the Mile High City for an inspired conversation about DIG’s work past, present and future.

Culinary artist, Francesca Arniotes, and mixologist Ryan Crane took us on a culinary adventure through the landscape of food. They created a menu of drinks and dishes that connected our local and global stories.

If you missed us, we’d love for you to consider making a meaningful contribution to DIG’s Denver From the Ground Up campaign.  We have almost reached our goal!

From the Ground Up is an initiative to fully equip DIG’s Local Facilitators as they grow and adapt DIG’s programs in Kenya, Uganda, and Senegal.

These women and men are preparing the most marginalized members of society to not only become key contributors to their families but are also creating more resilient food systems.

Any gift you make through this event will go towards Denver’s $35k equipping goal.
