Food Access

We use a "direct redistribution" model in which surplus healthy foods from local supermarkets, backyard gardens and cafeterias is brought directly to 20+ non-profit and community-driven programmatic sites for distribution. CSFR minimizes transportation time, engages an expansive network of volunteers, and co-creates healthy food access programs, with over a million meals redistributed since 2015. Find out more below:

Food Education

We believe that food insecurity is not separate from the context of our wider food system. Through project-based youth internships/employment, school-based food rescue programs, & events, we aim to foster youth leaders in food innovation and promoters of food equity in our community. Youth-led projects have ranged from community cookbooks to the management of healthy food distribution programs. Find out more below:

Food Production

Currently, over 95% of the food we eat comes from outside our community. And yet existing land and water resources are way under-utilized when it comes to growing our own food. That's why we redistribute healthy produce from overgrown gardens to our no-cost grocery programs. We plan to move the needle on local food production in 2019- stay tuned for more details!
