Food Shift

If you’re anything like us, you’re constantly thinking about food: What should I make for dinner? How long did it take to grow this one brussel sprout? Whose hands picked this tomato? Who first cultivated the peanut that goes into my daily PB&J? Am I getting all the proper nutrients in my diet? Is my diet good for the planet?

Here are some of our favorite food-centric books to help answer those questions. What are some of your favorite books about food? Let us know in the comments. 📖

Food Shift

We can’t compare apples and oranges, but what about perfectly round apples and slightly misshapen apples? Both are equally delicious, but the latter get thrown away. 🍎🍏

Up to 20% of fruit and vegetables produced are too “cosmetically compromised” to meet the market standards and end up in the landfill. That’s why we partner with Imperfect Foods, a longtime Food Shift food donor. Most recently, through their Feeding Change Fund, one of our program graduates receives weekly box donations filled with their perfectly imperfect grocery items. Beyond their own food recovery program, Imperfect Foods is doing the most to make sure any surplus rescued food makes it into the hands of our neighbors striving toward food security. A big thanks to Imperfect Foods for their continued support!
