Good foods

Sweetgreen … Founded in 2007, sweetgreen is a fast-casual destination for fun, delicious food that’s both healthy for you and aligned with your values. They source local and organic ingredients from farmers they know and partners they trust, supporting our communities. “We exist to create experiences where passion and purpose come together.”

Blue Bottle Coffee … “In the late 1600s, the Turkish army swept across much of Eastern and Central Europe, arriving at Vienna in 1683. Besieged and desperate, the Viennese needed an emissary who could cross Turkish lines to get a message to nearby Polish troops. Franz George Kolshitsky, who spoke Turkish and Arabic, took on the assignment disguised in Turkish uniform.”

JUST… “We believe a just food system begins with breakfast. So we’re searching faster and further, working with rural farmers, Michelin-starred chefs and world-class product developers to find tools in the plant kingdom that will make our food tastier, healthier and more sustainable.”

Good Eggs … “Absurdly fresh groceries, delivered. The unbelievably simple way to feed your family well, all week long. Good Eggs is the unbelievably simple way to feed your family well, all week long. The very best of the Bay, and affordable staples you need, delivered today.”

Ripple Foods … “Dairy free. As it should be. Ripple is a nutritious milk made from peas that is high in plant-based protein, low in sugar, and delicious. With eight times the protein of almond milk and half the sugar of milk, Ripple’s creamy, smooth flavor is perfect for people who believe nourishing the body is the first step to nourishing the soul.”
