Welcome to Westwood

Westwood is one of the most culturally vibrant neighborhoods in the Denver Metro Area, with over 81% of its residents identifying as Latinos.  Known for its delicious tacos and pho, Westwood is actually a food desert, which means that most of the population has limited access to affordable healthy food. Residents here suffer from many health risks, with 67% of the community at risk of obesity and diet-related illnesses. As a result, the average lifespan of a Westwood resident is 12 years shorter than surrounding Denver neighborhoods. The USDA estimates that over 23.5 million people live in food deserts like Westwood across the US.

We are Re:Vision

Re:Vision is non-profit organization committed to partnering with Westwood, and neighborhoods like it, to grow solutions. Since 2007, Re:Vision has worked with residents to transform a food desert into a local food oasis, to train local men and women as community leaders, and to grow community ownership in Denver. Re:Vision is dedicated to keeping power in the hands of the people and to cultivating thriving, self-sufficient communities. By growing solutions that are owned-locally, Re:Vision is building a model that can be scaled nationally, one neighborhood at a time.
