Our current food system is broken. While we produce more than enough food to feed everyone on the planet, many still go hungry everyday, even on our very own doorsteps. A staggering 40% of all food grown in the U.S. goes to waste, straight into the trash bin.
Homelessness is on the rise and much further displacement and food insecurity is expected due to increasingly unpredictable weather patterns. With the earth’s population expected to reach nine billion people by the year 2050, innovating our ailing food system is absolutely crucial.
Food Chariot hopes to live to see a world where all people have equal access to fresh, nutritious, delicious and sustainable food. We believe that we can make a difference and implement change by caring about the food that we eat.
Through increasing our awareness about the food that we produce, by voting with our forks and carefully choosing what we buy, ultimately regaining a long lost reverence for the food that we eat, we will hopefully move closer towards eradicating hunger in our communities.
Food Chariot vows to crusade against poverty and hunger, to do whatever possible to promote peace, love and social justice, and help feed mouths and minds. We are committed to making the most informed and ethically responsible choices possible when it comes to sourcing the ingredients that we bring to your table. With this is mind, it is our aim to create food which is both delicious and visually delightful, as well as being ethically and responsibly sourced.
As of January 2018, for every meal that we have created for one of our clients, we have donated a meal to those experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles.

So proud of our team! @zacharydavidbalusek made a connection with the wonderful and inspiring Glen Curado of @worldharvestcharities whom we met with yesterday -pictured here between @agracejohnson and @mosesuppose from @foodchariot00 This amazing org is going to help us immensely by providing fresh and organic food which would otherwise be thrown away (as they do with anyone who needs it!). This will help us support some of our upcoming food activism projects and with feeding our brothers and sisters experiencing homelessness. Cannot recommend them highly enough. And thanks so much to @viviankimx for the hook up! Mega swoon. 😍
