Eat Local, Grow Food, Live Sustainably
The mainstream food system in the US today is fundamentally flawed. Food is being grown and raised in ways that are ecologically damaging and nutritionally compromised, it is traveling vast distances to get to the plate, 30-40% of it is wasted, and it is often sold in inconvenient form factors with wasteful packaging. On the other hand, fresh, local, organic and sustainable food is expensive, inconvenient and often inaccessible.
Lettuce bridges this gap.
Lettuce is creating sustainable, hyper-local, technology-enabled food ecosystems in urban areas that turn unused urban land and resources into productive farms, package the output into healthy, delicious and convenient products, and deliver them to homes in zero-waste containers, all while increasing awareness and engagement around nutritious, local food. Our evolving social, local, commerce technology platform is connecting and empowering local food participants including growers, artisans, and consumers to do what they do well, with online tools, support, delivery, logistics, content, marketing and community engagement.
Our mission is to bring local, sustainable, nutritious food to the urban/suburban mainstream, by removing the major barriers of awareness, accessibility and affordability.
