Food Shift
This past week was busy as we launched Operation Together 3.0, (our point-to-point food program where Food Shift directly picks up food, that otherwise would’ve gone to waste from food donors, like SF Produce Market @thesfmarket, @wholefoods and distributors at the Oakland Produce Market and deliver it to our partners, local organizations who assist people through their food distribution programs). We picked up food graciously donated by @wholefoods and left with a completely full van! (Food Shift’s Yuka and Stephanie in the lower right corner photo).Donations were delivered directly to our partner, @eastoaklandcollective, saving time for them from driving to pick up and load/unload. Thank you Monica and Sylvia for your support (bottom left photo with Food Shift’s Stephanie).Prior to our move to a new office, we had a yard “non-sale” and the Alameda community showed up (top photo)! We thank those who were able to come and pick up items from our kitchen to re-home them. So many of you said these items would be helpful for your own homes, organizations, and school programs. We are so happy to hear that our items will be thoughtfully used once again as they were in our previous culinary program. ... See MoreSee Less

Paddy from @DailyBowlUC, a longtime food recovery colleague of Food Shift, shared with us a way to rescue food without having a kitchen or refrigeration facilities. He’s sharing with you his dal recipe, his favorite comfort food, a practical yet satisfying plant-based and protein-rich dish, made with pantry staples and providing opportunities to use up any vegetables you might have on hand.Paddy mentions, “The versatility of the basic dal preparation partners beautifully with a no-food-waste ethic, as any leafy green can be added, and even the lentils can be replaced with other legumes or small beans. It freezes well, too. My version is topped off with chopped cilantro and fresh squeezed lemon juice for color and zing!”Original artwork by Sophia Zaleski.For a print version of the recipe, visit the @stopwaste StopFoodWaste link in our bio or stopfoodwaste.org/tips/blog/paddys-dal #StopFoodWaste #WastedFood #FoodShift #foodrecipes #recipes #foodstories #food #alamedaca ...

The Ajinomoto seasoning company has created the campaign and they are serious about maximizing food. How does this international perspective and their message resonate with you? #wastedfood #foodwaste @ajinomoto.co.jp #foodshift ... See MoreSee Less

“What liberatory practices do you wish to continue that you’ve learned from your communities around leadership?”The LeaderSpring LeadStrong BIPOC women fellowship cohort began this month’s gathering with intention-setting, where participants co-created an altar with items that symbolized our responses to the above question.Food justice is hard work that requires digging deeper. Food Shift’s Exec Dir, Yuka, considered this theme and contributed a sticky note pad to the altar, symbolizing the humility with which we must show up to learn from the community we serve, to uplift and honor the voices of the people, not the facilitators. #foodjustice #leadership @leaderspring ...
