Bites is a farm-to-table mobile app that connects eaters and foodies with local cooks & chefs for meal prep services, drop-off meals, and in-home dining experiences, as well as interactive classroom lunches.
They help people create memorable and meaningful farm-to-table experiences…whether that’s in your own home, at the office, k-12 classroom, or college setting.
In 2018, bites received an award in sustainability from arizona state university’s walton school of sustainability.
“i have consciously tasted my way through encounters with food… it helped me learn how to be present in the moment – to taste life fully.”
says Roza Ferdowsmakan.
In 2019, Roza Ferdowsmakan was one of 11 women tech entrepreneurs globally selected by apple to be part of apple’s inaugural entrepreneur camp at apple park.
in 2020, bites was one of 245 social impact solutions selected by microsoft and giving tech labs to be part of the launch of their first-ever social impact platform, x4impact, which seeks to solve for the united nations’ sustainable development goals.
“We want to help move the needle away from flown-in, trucked-in, and shipped-in produce to locally-sourced. We care about the future of our planet and about the detrimental compounded effects of the growing global carbon footprint associated with globalized, commercial food production”
In 2021, Bites was part of ashoka’s annual event for university changemakers, and was presented as a social impact tool that universities can use to transform their campuses into sustainable food ecosystems for the benefit of students.
