About Us - The Brakfast Story
THE STORY OF BRAKFAST
Breakfast is traditionally considered to be the most important meal of the day, but for our founder, Gregory, it has always been one of the most important times of the day. Reason being, it was the one time of day he would anticipate waking up and sharing an enjoyable early morning conversation before work with his best friend and father; John. They'd take advantage of every moment, however short it may have been, talking about anything and everything that they could think of. A good cup of coffee and of course laughter was a big part of their early morning pre-work routine! Unfortunately, a year ago, Gregory's father John passed away from cancer.
Although, Gregory will never experience breakfast in the same way that he used to, he truly hopes that through Brakfast.com, others may find time in the morning, before or at work, to share similar moments of laughter and conversation.
Our mission is to "throwback hunger by helping companies fuel their employee's productivity and health".
In the USA, 1 in 6 people face hunger, called ”food insecurity”. It’s defined as the lack of access to enough food for all members in a household. That said, it's about 42 million Americans currently living in food insecure households. And yet, we hear that up to 40% of the food which is grown, transported or processed in the USA is wasted, according to Feeding America!
Well, we say "no more to hunger"! Our mission is to stop hunger one belly at a time. And therefore, with each continued weekly subscription at BRAKFAST.COM, we'll donate one (1) box or the equivalent value, to a local food shelter, in your name! It's our mission to #THROWBACKHUNGER
In addition, Brakfast is committed to working with local vendors, who are dedicated to offerring healthy and non-wasteful food options to supply our users boxes, such as Imperfect Produce or Bakers Acres!
