Hunger Relief Partner Highlight

If you ask Thai Nguyen how she manages to do all the things that she does—be a mother to three kids, oversee the operations of Kaizen Food Rescue, invest in her community—she’ll smile and shrug the question off. She just does. Simple as that.

Except that nothing about Thai’s work is simple. In fact, it’s complex and nuanced and extremely powerful, especially to the more than 2,300 families to whom she and her team of volunteers provide culturally relevant food every week. And as one of Food Bank of the Rockies’ Hunger Relief Partners, Kaizen Food Rescue is also incredibly important to us in helping us fulfill our mission of ending hunger by providing equitable access to proper nourishment for all.

It’s thanks to partners like Kaizen Food Rescue and our more than 800 other Hunger Relief Partners that Food Bank of the Rockies is able to do what it does. Read on to learn more about Thai and Kaizen Food Rescue, and how you can support the work she and all of our incredible partners do daily.


"By volunteering, you can see how you are really helping people directly. You are giving food to people directly. I think it’s great. It’s obvious how much you’re helping with these everyday necessities." remarked Ian, a Mobile Pantry volunteer. Want to help your community?
