The Big Thank You Party
For many years, Comeback Yoga, Denver Urban Gardens, and Denver Food Rescue have inspired Cappello’s with their work and dedication to helping those in need. As proud friends and sponsors, and in the spirit of community, celebration, and gratefulness, we figured it was time for all of us to get together for a proper face-to-face. In partnership with Lustre Pearl, The Big Thank You Party is an opportunity to show our continued support for these organizations, and ultimately, these great people doing great things. If you happen to be in Denver on June 1st, please join the Cappello’s Crew and Lustre Pearl from 5pm to 7pm to join in our gratitude! We'll have great door prizes, drinks, and some darn good company!
Meet the organizations
Comeback Yoga, founded in 2014, is a 501(c)3 non-profit that delivers free yoga classes to help military personnel, their families and supporters develop resiliency in response to their life experience that may include post-traumatic stress. Comeback Yoga also provides relevant master teacher training for its teachers to enable them to offer yoga classes best suited to the population we serve. Comeback Yoga's other mission is to offer scholarships for Yoga Teacher Training to veterans who are interested in becoming yoga teachers themselves.
UG comes alongside residents, and together, we grow community - one urban garden at a time. DUG offers neighborhoods the essential resources for community gardens, including on-going technical expertise with:
1. Securing sustainable land for gardens;
2. Designing and building gardens;
3. Supporting garden organization, leadership, outreach and maintenance;
4. Utilizing gardens as extraordinary places for learning and healthy living; and
5. Linking gardens with related local food system projects and policy.
DUG envisions a thriving and connected network of deeply-rooted community gardens, conceived of, cultivated and supported by local residents and institutions throughout the urban neighborhoods of Metro Denver.
The idea of the No Cost Grocery Program came about when Denver Food Rescue noticed gaps in the city’s food redistribution system. Mapping and data research found that typical food pantries and meal services served a narrow constituency contained to specific city blocks not located in communities across the Denver Metro area where they are needed most.
