Partners who helped us on our journey to reduce Food Waste!
With the help of our partners we are making a difference
At Imperfect, they are working to eliminate food waste and build a better food system for everyone. They believe that food is food, no matter what it looks like. They believe that everyone deserves access to healthy food, regardless of income. And they believe that by changing the way we eat and think about food, we can make the world a little better.
Rainbow Montessori School:
Founded in 1976, Rainbow Montessori began on a small school site in Campbell. Operations expanded over the years to include six more small school sites located across the South Bay Area. In the mid-80’s, those seven small schools were consolidated into three larger schools, which were eventually consolidated into the current site, located on the former campus of Sunnyvale High School.
Their current site affords them the space to provide care and education for over 900 children, ranging in age from six weeks to twelve years. The Montessori program is utilized in all infant, toddler, preschool, kindergarten, and elementary classrooms.
UC Berkeley FEED:
Food, Equity, Entrepreneurship, & Development (FEED) is a food justice consulting student organization. They generate answers to business-oriented questions for businesses that they believe are working to improve the food system. They create meaningful research projects designed to provide their clients with useful advice. Then, a team of carefully-selected students completes the project over the course of a semester.
As a part of the UC Berkeley campus community, FEED provides professional development opportunities and educational, food justice-oriented events to develop the skills of their consultants and prepare them for the variety of challenges, social settings, and people they will engage with in their projects.
Citizen Schools are building a movement around real-world learning, a pipeline of mentors, and the capacity of schools and communities to deliver a new approach to education – one that will help students develop the skills, mindsets and networks to thrive in the 21st century economy.
Now called as “Good Use” they are on a mission to reduce food waste by creatively sourcing ugly and surplus fresh produce before it gets sent to a landfill. They believe that every time one drinks one of their juices, then one joins in their fight against food waste. They work with local Bay Area farms and organizations to source fresh, cosmetically disadvantaged and surplus produce. Their purchasing practices help create an additional source of income for local distributors and reduces our production costs, which means they can pass savings on to people.
