At 4MyCiTy®, Our focus is on the Importance of Environmental Sustainability. Primarily the Sustainable Management of Food in relation to food waste. Our Project is broken down into 4 phases that have all successfully launched with the focus now on growth and showing the full effectiveness of the program and the benefits to our communities.
Phase 1 - Source Reduction: we currently run a food rescue operation that partners with businesses to collect and distribute their potential food waste. We rescue cooked and uncooked foods, Food scraps are also accepted as part of our community Composting initiative. Business can contact us to help with food waste Audits and educational seminars for their teams. Some of our food partners include, Amazon, Sysco Foods, Sudano's Produce, Lancaster Foods, Hilton Hotels, H&S Bakery/Northeast Foods. To date we have rescued over 30 Million pounds of food that would have been destined for landfills.
Phase 2 - Feed the Hungry and the Animals: all foods collected are distributed to local shelters and or community kitchens. Food scraps that can be served to the animals are distributed accordingly. We also have an exclusive partnership agreement with 34 other Non-Profits and or Professional organizations to distribute food to their respective communities. This group also includes several NFL athletes with their respective team/organizations. To date we have distributed over 60 Million pounds of food to those in need.
Phase 3 - Industrial/commercial use: we showcase this with the implementation of our recyclable/biodegradable products that we offer. i.e tableware, bags etc. Items will be available in our online store spring of 2021.
Phase 4 - Composting: we have successfully partnered and tested a very unique line of Automatic on site commercial composters. Our composter is capable of turning 100lbs of food waste into 10 to 15lbs of nutrient-rich soil amendment. The compost is then delivered to our local community gardens free of charge for them to focus on growing cleaner and healthier foods.
We use our initiative to educate members of the community on the importance of reducing food waste at various stages, with a goal of diverting more from our landfills and incinerators. We have launched our home composting Bucket program. Email us for more information on how you can participate in this program.
