ALL IN Eats Circular Food Economy
Getting Good Food to Where It’s Needed
It’s one thing to create the beneficial foods that people need to live healthy lives, but if those with food insecurities and diet-related health challenges don’t have access to good food, neither the County nor its residents will benefit from the work already being done within the ALL IN Eats Circular Food Economy. That’s where the Distribution component of this model comes in.
Circulating Food Throughout the Community
Tracking the flows of food from farm to hub to table and beyond.
Delivering Farm Produce & Prepared Meals
ALL IN Eats distribution work enables Alameda County residents to receive and benefit from the foods created by our Farmer Collective and local Food Entrepreneurs, as well as food generated through our Food Recovery network.
Creating Living Wage Work to Re-Entry Employees
ALL IN Eats distribution team is made up of hard-working re-entry employees who receive living wages as drivers who pick up farm produce for Food As Medicine, prepared meals, and recovered food and redistribute it to local residents. We’re working on several initiatives to fund and expand these living wage jobs.
Generating Significant Health Benefits
It’s at the ALL IN Eats distribution phase that Alameda County residents get the full benefit of consuming the healthy foods prepared locally – and that means serious health improvements for diet-related diseases like diabetes and hypertension, greater productivy for food recipients, and medical savings for everyone.
