About Food Shift


Our Mission & Vision

Food Shift is reducing the harmful impacts of wasted food and improving community health through the recovery, redistribution, and processing of surplus food. Food Shift Catering, a social enterprise kitchen, provides training and jobs to individuals with barriers to employment.

By reducing food waste, we can feed the hungry, create jobs, combat climate change, and cultivate more sustainable communities.
