Every community is part of and well-provided for by a food system that is healthy for all beings and the earth. This looks like:
- All people have the resources they need to thrive beyond day-to-day survival.
- All people have the time, energy, information, and economic capacity to make desired food choices.
- Food and resources in the food system are cultivated without exploitation of communities and the earth. Instead, food is produced in a way that creates mutual and reciprocal relationships with people and the land.
- All people easily access foods which are nourishing and hold connection to their communities and culture.
BFR works to create a more just and less wasteful food system. We facilitate the sustainable redistribution of healthy food that would otherwise be wasted to low-income communities, by bicycle. We work with communities to facilitate their own food redistribution and create decentralized systems to bypass barriers to food access.
