In Colorado’s rural areas, a small number of people with complex medical diagnoses are now receiving meals from Project Angel Heart! Our distribution coordinator, Matt Nigro, explains how we’re getting medically tailored meals to more people who need them.
Through Project Angel Heart’s core program, volunteers deliver meals to clients across 750 square miles of metro Denver and Colorado Springs. While we’re proud to serve such a large area, when you take a look at Colorado as a whole, there’s a strong need in rural areas for food assistance, especially with a nutritional focus. Shipping our frozen meals presents an exciting way to serve Coloradans we’ve never reached before! Continue reading →
This is a new recipe created by our sous chef, Summer Polson. In October, when we started cooking and delivering 40 percent more meals each week, we also made a big change to our menu: incorporating a weekly vegetarian meal. We have had fun figuring out different things we can do with eggs, and this recipe was an instant hit! So much so that a volunteer who was here dishing up the meal for clients requested the recipe. Here it is—we hope you enjoy!

On May 2, 2019, more than 250 local restaurants and breweries will donate 25 percent of sales to Project Angel Heart for Dining Out For Life®. For 25 years, the event has been our biggest fundraiser. The key to that success? Volunteer ambassadors!
Ambassadors represent Project Angel Heart at participating restaurants during this fun, one-day event. They invite their friends and family to dine out and then, on the day of, thank people for dining out and tell them more about our mission.
Ambassadors also give diners the opportunity to make personal donations at the event… which makes a huge impact. The average personal donation total at restaurants without volunteer ambassadors is just $39. At restaurants with an ambassador, the total is $835—more than 20 times higher! Every dollar they raise helps Project Angel Heart provide meals for neighbors in need. Continue reading →
Did you know that Project Angel Heart offers two meal delivery programs? Most meals are delivered via our core program, our legacy program where philanthropic investments fund meals for Coloradans who are ill. In 2016, we also started Meals for Care Transitions, a program where health care organizations reimburse Project Angel Heart to provide meals for their patients. This program gives health care providers and payers a way to support their patients’ health with delicious, medically tailored meals, and it allows Project Angel Heart the opportunity to provide food as medicine for more people in need.
To check in on the program’s progress, we sat down with Leslie Scotland-Stewart, Project Angel Heart’s director of health care innovation, to ask a few questions: Continue reading →
