The Food

Food is the way i communicate, connect and collaborate with my community, with a focus on our elders. Invito 

Invito Kitchen uses rescued unused food from area Restaurants, Food Banks and Wholesale Food Distributors.  The  The rescued food is then "Upcycled" into healthy meals. The meals are then delivered to senior apartment buildings and adult daycares across multiple Ohio Counties.  Service coordinators, staff and volunteers at each building then distribute the meals to residents. 

Upcycled food is priceless 

Globally, we lose around $1 trillion per year on food that is wasted or lost. Upcycled food captures that value, and leverages it to create a sustainable and resilient food ecosystem.
