How We're Making a Difference
By consolidating grocery shopping and cooking, we aim to reduce food waste and emissions in an accessible way. Keeping meals affordable allows us to make a sustained difference to lives daily in a way that is not only good for the environment, but in a way that reduces the burden on individuals & families too.
Food accounts for 26% of global emissions
This includes direct and indirect emissions through growing, land use, transportation, and processing.
At least half of these emissions can be traced back to the consumption of meat.
By reducing the amount of food wasted and making vegetarian and vegan options more accessible, we aim to reduce the food footprint.
About 40% of food is wasted in the US
In the US, most of the waste happens at the consumer level, either ingredients going bad or prepared food being thrown away. In contrast, in developing nations, most food waste happens at the supply chain level.
We want to shrink consumer waste as much as possible by shifting it towards our optimized and streamlined process.
Food waste emissions
are larger than all of India's emissions
Global food waste emissions total 3.6Gtons (India: 3.2) and are approximately 8% of all anthropogenic emissions.
This is excluding the effect of wasted land use, which would add about 22% to this number.
We aim to eventually expand nationwide, then globally to and increase efficiency and reduce the global food footprint.

36.5 million Americans are food insecure
14 millions Americans have very low food security.
Single parent households and Black and Hispanic minorities are disproportionately affected.
By maintaining an affordable price point, we aim to provide more nutritious food to everyone.
Women are still bearing most of the meal burden
Even though women are almost equally represented in the labor force, they are still also doing most of the grocery shopping and cooking.
That can be a lot of unpaid additional work if you don't want to cook all your meals. We want to give people the choice to have that time back.
15 million US households struggle with single parents
22 million children live in single parent households, of which 80% are led by a mother. Single parent households have continued to grow aggressively
in the US.
By providing an affordable and time saving option, we hope to better support people in need.
