40% of all food produced in the US is wasted. But food isn’t waste – it’s valuable nutrition that uses precious environmental resources and is a powerful tool that can be used to educate, engage, and inspire communities.
Food Shift is using the power of food, community, and social enterprise to develop solutions that reduce waste and strengthen local communities through employment opportunities, nourishing meals, and community.
Join us at The Food Shift Kitchen for:
- A tour of The Food Shift Kitchen
- A presentation by Food Shift’s Founder & Director Dana Frasz followed by a Q & A
- A nourishing vegetarian meal produced by Food Shift Chef Terrell Brunet and the Food Shift Kitchen apprentices
- A chance to be one of our first customers and take home soups, sauces, and items to share with friends and family
By dining with us you are contributing to the local economy and supporting our efforts to build a more just and sustainable food system.
About Food Shift:
Food Shift is a non-profit social enterprise based in Alameda, CA. It is our mission to reduce waste and increase access to nutritious food while catalyzing models for job creation in the food efficiency sector. As one step toward that goal, in 2016 Food Shift launched The Food Shift Kitchen. Using fresh fruits and vegetables from farms, grocers, and distributors that would otherwise be discarded due to imperfections, the Food Shift Kitchen creates meals and food products which are sold throughout the community and provided to food insecure communities. The Food Shift Kitchen trains and employs individuals with barriers to employment. Working with communities, businesses, and governments, our goal is to develop powerful regional models that can be scaled nationally to empower waste reduction, job creation, and food distribution.
Work up an appetite for a delicious vegetarian buffet prepared with love by The Food Shift Kitchen. We can’t tell you the menu in advance because it depends on what we receive that day from our food rescue efforts. We look forward to sharing with you the magic and creativity of The Food Shift Kitchen!
