We are passionate about great-tasting healthy food
Founded in 2005, Red Rabbit's mission is to provide all children with access to nutritious, made-from-scratch meals in school, while encouraging them to explore learn and grow healthy relationships with food that will last a lifetime. To accomplish this we:
- Partner with local schools and provide them kid-tested, made from scratch, customized healthy meal programs.
- Provide access to information about healthy eating and how to make healthy choices via our digital outlets.
- Educate kids, teachers, families and communities about wellness, nutrition and healthy eating choices so they can make the right decisions for themselves when not in school.
We are B Corp Certified
What is that you ask? B Corp is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk. Meaning – we care about our partners, employees and community. As a B Corp, we are certified by the nonprofit B Lab and have met rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We are a part of a community of more than 1000 companies in over 60 industries with one unifying goal: redefining success in business.
Red Rabbit Sustainability Principles
Sustainability is very important to us and we are always looking for ways to reduce our environmental impact throughout our business. We encourage our school partners to use our reusable dishware, utensils, serving and food containers and have completely eliminated the use of Styrofoam.
In addition to our reusable dishware and utensils, serving and food containers program, we recycle paper, plastic and aluminum.
Leftover food is donated to local organizations that are in need of healthy food, such as the Bailey House, serving community members who live with HIV or AIDS located in East Harlem.
Empowerment and Action through Education
Education is an integral part of our daily operations. Our fast-paced kitchen, office, school cafeterias, classrooms and creative community gardening spaces are ideal places to learn and take action for passionate interns and recent graduates who are passionate about social, economic and environmental change.
