About Food Shift


677 W Ranger Ave, Alameda, CA 94501, US

Mission Statement

Food Shift develops holistic, practical solutions to reduce food waste, nourish communities, and provide jobs.


At Food Shift, we believe food alone cannot solve hunger. Food Shift is utilizing opportunities in the food system to address the intersecting issues of climate change, job and economic security, and community health.

Our model focuses on rescuing surplus food that would otherwise waste away in landfills and utilize it to fuel our social enterprise kitchen. We address food insecurity and joblessness in our community through our culinary training, food recovery programs and social enterprise kitchen, which are designed for those facing high barriers to employment.


Community, Environment, Hunger


We'll work with your schedule.
