Food Shift

Giving Tuesday is in T minus 2 days! This global generosity movement promotes small acts of generosity one can engage in this Tuesday, next Tuesday, or better yet, every day! On Dec.1st, please consider donating to Food Shift to fuel our COVID-19 response initiative, Operation Together.

Donate here: secure.acceptiva.com/?cst=37a27a

Food Shift’s Bay Area community is unique, and folks within it are best equipped to address the nuanced opportunities and challenges specific to it. Because Operation Together was developed BY, FOR, and WITH our own community members, it is optimized to build capacity in and benefit our local ecosystem. What does that look like? With all of our partners, we conduct detailed introductory interviews to understand the special needs of our neighbors, and site-specific logistical challenges. Detailed notes on everything from storage capacity to culturally appropriate produce types form the basis for our food curation decisions, so that we intentionally match recovered food with a happy home.

Here is a behind-the-scenes look into our daily food recovery and redistribution operations, as Food Shift team members pack bags full of green beans, broccoli, avocado, and other fresh produce from the SF Market tailored to fit the needs and desires of our longtime partner, the East Oakland Collective:
