Because we believe food belongs in people’s mouths and stomachs, not landfills...
2Forks aims to curb unnecessary food waste by redirecting unused food (or its monetary value)
to the food insecure among us, while simultaneously promoting healthier eating habits.
Look for the 2Forks icon! An icon of a small salad fork next to a larger dinner fork will identify the menu items which have been adapted to a smaller portion size and, when ordered, have an impact on reducing food insecurity.
When a restaurant patron orders the 2Forks menu item they get a smaller portion at the full price, with the unused food or the unused food cost going to
*The 2Forks icon will be similar to campaigns like Heart-Healthy, Vegan, & Gluten-Free that reached national & beyond markets using icons to assist patrons in healthy food choices.
The customer orders:
"I'll have the 2Forks Lamb Chops."
The patron pays the $60 full meal price and receives a smaller portion. The restaurant donates
the unused food or food cost (usually 10-15 percent of the menu price, in this case $7.50) to the food-related
charity of their choice.
Ideally, the restaurant would have at least one 2Forks item in each menu category:
Appetizer, Salad, Main, Dessert
Let's do a trial launch, with participating restaurants offering a few items on a
2Forks MENU INSERT
The press and medical community will promote participating restaurants and the impact they can have on reducing food insecurity AND eating healthier. 2FORKS can also provide each restaurant with customized menu inserts explaining the concept.
And, we hope restaurant patrons will want to make their 2024 New Year's Resolution:
"I want to make a difference: in my waist and in food waste.
This year, let's go to restaurants that have 2Forks options!"
Whether you are a Restaurant, Chef or Food Retail/Distributor, a Food Insecurity Provider, a Celebrity who has lost weight or champions food insecurity solutions, a Medical Professional* who understands the cost of over-eating, or Just Someone Who Wants to Make a Difference. . .
