ABOUT
COOK it Forward

Cook It Forward represents a new community response strategy that aligns restaurants with traditional non-profits, community-centered corporate entities to all tackle food insecurity in a coordinated way.  This is social entrepreneurship at its core working collectively on community development, social equity, and social justice-- one meal at a time.

PARTICIPATING RESTAURANTS.

Independent and locally-owned restaurants that share values of Inclusivity, Community, Industry, Humility, Positivity, Health, and Safety.  The starting roster includes: Ancora Coffee, Banzo, Casetta, Gates & Brovi, Harvest, La Kitchenette, Lucille, Madtown Food Services, Marigold, Merchant, Morris Ramen, Pasture & Plenty, Sardine, and The Old Fashioned.

 

NON PROFIT PARTNERS.

Collab4Good provides targeted capacity building services including communication and coordination with direct response providers— nonprofits and programs— who represent and work with the unmet food demand.  The Center for Community Stewardship is a 501(c)(3) and provides fiscal agency, compliance and accounting services.

'LAST-MILE' DISTRIBUTION 

PARTNERS.

‘Last-mile’ distribution partners ensure that the growing
number of individuals and families who need the food, and without
recourse to access it, receive it.

 

R.E. Golden provides refrigerated pickup and delivery of our meals to pantries and 'last mile' delivery providers.
