ForageSF was conceived of by Iso Rabins in early 2008, with the mission to connect Bay Area dwellers with the wild food that is all around them. Through a monthly box of all wild foraged foods, which we call a CSF, we deliver fresh, sustainably harvest wild food to city dwellers. From wild mushrooms to acorn flour, there is a wealth of edible forage just outside our doors that few people know about, and still fewer ever consume. Our goal is to push people out of the supermarket, to get them trying new foods harvested sustainably and fairly by their neighbors. As part of our community focused philosophy, 50% of the profit from the sale of any product we purchase from a forager goes straight to that individual . That is, to the person who collected it.
We mean to create a situation where foraging can be a full time profession for those who enjoy the work. Jobs that are both economically and spiritually fulfilling are in short supply these days, and any small change we can make to that situation will be a positive first step. If you are interested in getting involved, please sign up to be kept updated on our CSF and forageSF news and events.
