Impossible Foods has partnered with Colin Kaepernick to "support food security and social justice through 2020".
The food tech company works with the non-profit vegan athlete Know Your Rights Camp, a multi-city program to promote civil rights through education, self-empowerment, mass mobilization and leadership of black and brown communities.
The partnership started last week in the Bayview neighborhood of San Francisco. Al Pastor Papi cooked and distributed Impossible Burgers and the San Francisco Marin Food Bank donated additional food and ready meals.
& # 39; change of results and differences
"Access to healthy and affordable food shouldn't be a challenge for any community," said Patricia Robinson, director of Community Outreach, Know Your Rights Camp.
"Know Your Rights Camp is committed to changing the outcomes and differences that currently exist for families as we continue to raise awareness and recognize that maintaining good health and nutrition should not be selective for some, but experienced by everyone should."
"The immediate needs of our community"
The CEO and founder of Impossible Foods, Dr. Patrick O. Brown added: "Impossible Foods' mission is to reverse the clock of climate change, restore biodiversity and expand natural ecosystems – results that will literally change the way Earth looks from space.
"At the same time, as an indispensable company, we are here in an unprecedentedly challenging time to meet the most basic and immediate needs of our community – including the food insecurity crisis and social justice struggles in our home region in the San Francisco Bay Area and communities throughout America. "
According to Impossible Foods, donating vegetable meat to feed at least 1 million people this year is on the right track. Over 750,000 people have been relieved since the pandemic began
