The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination.

Carl Rogers

Co-created with love & joy

 

Food Citizens see ourselves as co-creators. We come from different backgrounds and are at different life stages. What unites us is a desire to have a deeper appreciation of food sustainability matters, and a commitment to practice what we value in our daily life.

Our story began in 2019 when a school asked individuals of a ground-up network to create and deliver a semester-long program for a cohort of 10-year-olds.

 

The challenge - teaching students about food waste and empathy, as well as getting them to learn more about their neighbourhood and design ideas to improve it.

The school liked the program but needed to award it to a company - and that's when Food Citizen got registered. We did not start with a business model, but rather with a belief - that the knowledge, experience, and original ideas of local practitioners have much to offer schools, businesses, and communities.

And so here we are today. Food Citizen is a team of 3 co-creators. Together with other local practitioners, we curate and deliver unique programs, workshops, and talks. We support the sustainable journeys of our customers through exploration, practice, joy, and care.
