Freshocracy

Just came across this from my weekly Good Food Jobs email blast, and I have to say, this is a fantastic idea. Freshocracy is the brain child of Christina DeLaura who is working to bring sustainably harvested, fresh market ingredients to kitchen tables across NYC. A simple concept – she does the shopping at the market, prepares healthy recipes, incorporates pantry staples perfectly portioned so there is zero-waste, and delivers them to your door. She’s even done the math – the average cost of eating out is around $48 (with tax and tip), the average cost of take-out is about $19, and the average cost of a freshocracy meal is only $15 (which includes 4 servings). It sounds like a no-brainer for singles or families who want meals made from local ingredients but don’t have the time, energy, or access to farmer’s markets. What I love most is that amateur, at-home chef’s are learning new skills with each delivery, and hopefully spreading the message and sharing food love with others. A message from the maker – Join. Cook. Enjoy.
