"Food Shift is developing collaborative models to reduce wasted food, nourish communities, and provide jobs. Our main program, The Food Shift Kitchen (TFSK), is a social enterprise that provides culinary job training to individuals eager to work their way into a more empowered life. Using fresh produce that would otherwise be discarded due to imperfections, TFSK processes and distributes food to local agencies that feed food-insecure communities. Under the mentorship and support of Food Shift’s Culinary Director, kitchen apprentices receive job readiness support, nutrition coaching, and a certificate after a 6-month program that articulates the marketable skills they acquired. Food Shift supports program graduates in finding work and/or schooling, and hires graduates for special events."
