Food Shift

Our apprentices have been busy in the Food Shift Kitchen working on the production of our upcycled dog treats, PAWSitive Bones! We’ve been expanding production of our treats and are now stocked in three stores: Alameda Natural Grocery, Farmer Joe's Marketplace and Hollie's Homegrown. Stop by any of these stores to get treats for your furry friends and support our job training and waste prevention programs in the process! ... See MoreSee Less

Food Shift

Looking to reduce your food waste in the new year? In the United States, we currently waste more than 1,000 calories per person per day, which is enough food to feed over 150 million people each year. The majority of food waste happens at the consumer level, and reducing waste in households and restaurants would lower emissions in every step prior to consumption. Learning to use your senses rather than labels to decide when food is spoiled, and lowering portion sizes in restaurants are just some of the ways we can begin stopping food waste before it starts.

Food Shift

Every week in the Food Shift Kitchen, the apprentices in our on-the-job training (OJT) program make a family meal for everyone on-site using entirely recovered foods and pantry items. This week, Vince was our only apprentice in the kitchen, and he made delicious fried rice and stir fried garlic green beans. Family meals are a great way for Food Shift apprentices to practice culinary skills while reducing waste by giving new life to recovered food!
