The Berkeley Food Network is piloting our Hub Kitchen Project this fall. The goal of this project is to increase the supply of nutritious complete meals, such as bulk ready-made meals and individually packaged ready-to-eat/heat meals, available to food-insecure residents of Berkeley by taking advantage of surplus food from local commercial food businesses and farms. The food will be taken to some of our agency partners who will serve or distribute the food directly to their program participants. BFN is partnering with Bauman College, Replate, Daily Bread, and a corps of volunteers to operate the program. We plan to have our program up and running by the end of October. Please let us know if you would like to receive food from this program or are interested in participating in some other way.
