A Social Food Venture: Fresco Foods
Co-founding a mission-driven, meal kit startup providing pre-cooked meal prep items for students to make quick & delicious meals.
Fresco Foods is on a mission to tackle food insecurity locally and abroad—by empowering college students to eat more real food & donating 4 meals to Rise Against Hunger for every item purchased.
Through this, Fresco Foods hopes to raise awareness about hunger and food insecurity through partnerships with other aligned organizations. In May '19, Fresco Foods hosted a meal packaging event at Cornell that donated 12,000 meals to Rise Against Hunger.
