What We Do

Food Shift works collaboratively with communities, businesses and governments to develop sustainable solutions that reduce wasted food and hunger.


Food Shift works in the San Francisco Bay Area to design and implement community-level programs in partnership with local organizations.  We use our broad local and national network and platform to educate, inspire, and connect individuals to our work and the broader movement.

Community Engagement




Food Shift works with businesses, organizations, and institutions to recover food and develop customized programs that reduce food waste and cut costs.

Event Food Recovery

Business Consulting

Food Shift recovered X pounds of food from the BALLE Conference.



Food Shift works with municipalities and counties to research and recommend effective government interventions to improve food recovery and distribution.  We envision the creation of a food recovery service sector as an extension of our current waste management system and as a way to create quality jobs.  This is a realistic vision that will require a radical shift in thinking about food recovery as a service rather than a charity and will require government support.
